August colour challenge

Make the Day Special stamp store have an August challenge. After recently buying and super speedily receiving the w9 plus handwritten thanks stamp set from the shop I was happy to put to use!

When you pull the zipper back it very much. I used distress inks and spritzed with water onto an acrylic block for the background.

This is to thank friends who recommended we holiday in Portugal this summer. I was asking around as we had no idea where to go.  They were nervous about recommending it in case we didn't like it ..... we loved it!

This is one of the beautiful Algarve beaches:

the Portuguese were so friendly and the food was delicious.


Distress inks: salty ocean, spiced marmalade and tumbled glass


  1. Nice card! Really love the water effect background! ^_^

  2. So beautifully CAS..... I can see where your colour & design inspiration came from seeing those photos :0) Thanks for joining in with our challenge at Make the Day Special Stamp Store x
