People Who Leave A Great Impression On Us

Memories of the Sea


Happy Friday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Great impressions Blog. Another weekend is upon us and this one is the official kick-off of summer. Whatever your plans are hope they are fun ones on this Memorial Day week-end.

Since its summer's entrance, I thought I would make a card that reflects something about summer that I love. It's the beach of course.

My card is using 3 Great Impressions Stamps on this one. The sailboat is the "sail away E418" stamp and the sentiment is "our memories F396".  I only stamped part of the sentiment on the card front and the remainder on the card inside.

I brayered and sponged the background and masked a circle for the setting sun. I used the same circle and turned it the other way to mimic a reflection in the water.

I used a white gel pen to make the whitecaps and added some twine that is tied in sailors knots.

I also completed the inside of my card on this one. I stamped the remaining part of the "our memories F396" sentiment and then added a birthday sentiment using "flourish birthday wishes" E742. I had some star fish and shell buttons in my stash so I used these for a little bling.

Well that's it for me for this Friday. Before I go I wanted to let you know that there is a sale going on in the online store. You can get 20% off your order plus free shipping on U.S. orders over $25. Check it out here. The stamps I used today are available in the store.

Until next time.......Inky hugs
