part of the book cover that inspired the background

On previous posts you’ve seen scraps of the background already but this is the card originally created using it. Stamp sets used are from Concord & 9th, Inspired by Stamping with the beach ball coming from a free Internet image. I hand tore the bottom of the background piece to create the illusion of waves on the beach, then I added a piece of kraft that I shaded a bit to create the illusion of sand. Once it was glued to card front I added the chair and the ball. I added the sun and glittered the centre of it then added tiny clouds on top. Added the larger cloud and then the fussy cut sentiment. If all goes well, I hope to be sitting on our boat looking over the ocean pretty soon.

    1. Thanks – I did some of it by hand and with a stencil too. The book was an excellent read by the way.


  1. Yes I like it too. I like that particular stamp set and have used quite a few of the sentiments. The other set by same company has lots of seaside type images that I’ve use a fair bit too. Just got my June Hero Arts kit this morning so shall have some fun with that later.


    1. Thanks – doing this background as close to the book image became an obsession for a short time. It was fun when I got a similar look with the supplies at hand.
