I've made a step card, creating a beach scene. The image is 'Deckchair Dreaming' (by Lili of the Valley)...which is how I would love to spend my summer holiday...if only the weather would oblige! lol All of the cardstock I've used is from the 'Whitewash' Core'Dinations pack...although I've only shown the reverse so you can't see the 'whitewash' bit...but the colours were just perfect for what I wanted! To create some texture, I've used my Cuttblebug 'Tiny Bubbles' folder on the 'sand', and 'D'Vine Swirls' folder (available here at the Secret Crafter) for the sea...then I rubbed a Versamark inkpad (available here at the Secret Crafter) over the raised bits, and embossed with white powder for the 'foam'. I used one of my scalloped Nesties (available here at the Secret Crafter) for the 'sun', and the cloud was hand drawn.
My lovely Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge teamies have created some gorgeous cards to inspire you this week...so please pay them a visit.
