My last name is BEACH

Yes, that's a reminder in case some of you only know my blog name or don't know me at all. Cindy Beach is a great name! 
So when I saw the beautiful prompt at Inspired By ...the Sea, I just had to join in! 

There were many ideas to jump off from the photo, but I chose the shells and blue tones as I've been wanting to use the Cloche Quarters and Summer Fillers sets from Papertrey Ink. 

I was also highly influenced by THIS gorgeous card by Kelly. I loved the way she inked narrow paper strips to form an ombre colored background. I inked the strips in various blues to create this technique. I can't wait to try it again! 

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit. I don't usually post on weekends but you know what? I am on a roll with challenges now and I'm loving it! 

The more often I create, the easier it gets to create. Right now I'm happy with that, and have given up the notion that every card has to be a knockout. Does that make sense? 

Til next time, have a wonderful day!
