The Open Sea

Lulworth Cove

Good morning Crafty Hippies!
We managed to get away at the weekend; it was a very impromptu jump-in-the-van-quick type trip and we hit the road not knowing exactly where we would end up...... 

Durdle Door

We found ourselves at Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door... It was a beautiful day and although these pictures from my mobile don't really do the day or the scenery justice, you do get some idea of its beauty.

This stretch of coastline is part of the Jurassic coast - it is so evocative and even 'feels' Jurassic if you can catch my drift (excusing the pun!).

Of course this meant that when I got home I had to make a sea-themed card. This is a CASE'd card, though; my version of Crafting Clare's card. Very cleverly she used the Woodgrain stamp for the rolling sea.... a totally inspired idea.

I used a Brayer to colour both the sky and the sea, and strips of Cherry Cobbler card to line the picture. The  stamp set is "The Open Sea" and the sentiment is from "Delightful Dozen"; and sets off the card perfectly. You could change the sentiment to "Happy Birthday" and this would make a perfect masculine card.
