Wishing I was at the Beach

The new DRS Designs Challenge is Life Is A Beach!  Cards and Creations that are all about the beach or have beach themed additions.

These days, I am really craving some beach time - time at a very remote beach with no people and a nice early morning or late evening walk.  The crashing wave sounds coming through the window at night. The kind of beach trip that restores your balance.  Since that is what I want, my card has a peaceful deserted beach and soft colors.

I sponged on distress inks, drew on some little waves with a white gel pen,, then splashed on some white chalk paint on the shoreline.  Next, I stamped the DRS Designs Sitting Thinking Greeting and the Adirondack Chair (fussy cut and adhered it).

I love beach cards - hope you will join us in this challenge.



  1. I think I could just jump right into this card with you Nancy! :) You've made a really stunning beach scene here!! Love the texture effect you gave the water and shore!! Stunning card!! HUGS

  2. Yep, you described the perfect beach getaway with the sounds and sights of the ocean. I think you pretty much nailed it with this wonderful card too! Well done - here's to serenity and peace!

  3. A fabulous card Nancy, you have created such a lovely beach scene, it looks just like the one that you crave!

  4. Oh me too, honey, me too! Let's just close our eyes and envision the beautiful scene you've created together. ;0 Such amazing work!

  5. This is so beautiful! I'm so with you...I would love to be sitting on a nice peaceful beach right now too! Haven't done that since April 2007! (I think I'm overdue!)
