A Peaceful Place to Rest and Relax

Thankfully we have had some rain this past week and with a good soaking surprises appear in the garden... found this glorious Bromeliad poking it's bright, vivid red and purple flower in amongst all the green.

From my stash of pre-stamped images I found this lovely beach scene, so attacked it with my sponge and Distress Inks to create a soft morning sky, then coloured the image with pencils and added some white gel pen to the waves.  I die cut a stitched frame for the image and attached to a blue ribbed card.  I'm leaving off the sentiment for now as this could be used for various occasions... get well, travel, male.
I am playing along with the Just Add Ink challenge #491 - inspired by the soft colours and the beach scene.
Thanks for stopping by my blog  --- have a Happy Day

  1. Thank goodness you can't see me drooling here... This is absolutely fantastic!

  2. What I wouldn't give to be there right now!
    Storm Ciara is in full force here and the tranquil sound of the waves lapping gently whilst dozing in a hammock is something that I am dreaming of!
    A super card Robyn. x
