Sitting by the Sea

For this month's CAS Watercolour theme of "Summer", I borrowed some stamps of deckchairs from my friend, Christine.  I already posted this card using one of her stamps but wanted to use another one before I give them back.  I was inspired to get it done today because of today's SCS Ways to Use It challenge "That's Sea Worthy".

It's another card inspired by my childhood holidays in England on the south coast with my grandparents. My grandmother always brought her deckchair to the beach and watched us children while we made sandcastles. She always brought a bottle of lemon or orange squash for us to drink.

I stamped and watercoloured, trimmed the panel and popped it up on fun foam, and then added a trio of little starfish to the bottom corner of the cardbase.

Please come and join us at CAS Watercolour before June 24th!

  1. Love your soft watercoloured background, Susan. And such a sweet summer beach scene with the deck chair, sandcastle and cool drink! xx

  2. Thank you Susan for sharing your sweet Summer seascape and family memory. I love your colorful beach chair and sandcastle. We did the same except we always had beach towels to lay on. Now a days you need a beach umbrella too. Hugs..

  3. I had many a day at the beach during the summer in Swansea with my bucket for my sand castle and my parents would rent a deck chair. Great card to bring back fun memories :)

  4. You did a fabulous job on this, Susan! Love the watercoloring on this too. Such a wonderful sunny day and heart warming memories.
