In between Migraines

I've had a bout of frequent & severe migraines lately which has reduced the amount of crafting I've been able to enjoy. In between migraines though, I have made this wallet card using some wonderful Inkadinkado clear stamps.


I bought some templates & silkies at the Bath & West show & tried them out on this card. The backing paper has diamonds on it, which add extra interest where they are visible through the areas where I sponged blue onto the paper through the swirls template. This seemed to match perfectly the atmosphere I wanted for this card & it's seaside theme.
I then stippled Distress Inks onto a piece of card, before stamping the lighthouse image onto the area I had masked off,  then glazed the white masked off area. I added the seagull/sentiment stamp to balance the card.



                             This is the inside of the wallet - I wanted to add interest inside, but 
                             wanted to keep it quite simple, so opted not to colour it.
                             tfl & for any comments you may care to leave.
