I can see the sea...

 Good morning, this week's challenge at Fab 'n' Funky will be the last one before we break for the summer, the theme is 'I can see the sea' .. anything sea related will be great- under the sea, on the sea, beach, mermaids etc as long as we can see the sea!

I made this simple card a while ago, smooshed a little Distress oxide ink on the lower part of a white card panel, flicked some around with a fan brush and then stamped the lighthouse image on top. I used  my sadly neglected Zig Clean Colour pens to paint the image. I used my die cuts to create the simple frame and added a stamped sentiment.

Please hop over to Fab 'n' Funky to view the inspiration cards for this week- hope you find the time to play along.

Thanks for visiting

Your smooshed sea really sets the sea theme and makes a lively base for the image. Thanks for sharing in our Anything Goes challenge at the Crafters Cafe, come back soon. CarolG
