Life is a beach?

Hi folks, I hope you have enjoyed a lovely weekend and the rain here in the UK hasn't spoilt  it for you! We had a lot of rain overnight here in the south but today has been absolutely glorious!
Over at Karen's blog Snippets the challenge for OLW ( One Layer Wednesday) is, in Karen's own words,
"Create a card that depicts the beach or is water inspired.  Add a link to your card.  Remember to 
     keep embellishments to a minimum and NO ADDITIONAL LAYERS of cardstock."
 My card is using stamps from Sheena Douglass 'Seaside' I've had these particular stamps for quite a while and this is their first inking but I thought they fitted with the theme rather well :D
 Same card different background! I also used my Inktense pencils, woah! I really like these pigment heavy pencils, you don't realise how rich they are until you add the water, POW soo inky.
Thank you for dropping by, Gay x
p.s My sentiment stamp is by Lindsay Mason, 'Love that Binds'

Love how you've done this card Gay - looks so good on a long thin card; as if the beach goes on forever. Fab sentiment as well. Great colouring.
