It's a very simple card. Stamped the background in Hero Arts soft granite shadow ink.

ATCAS - Seaside

Time for a new challenge at ATCAS. The new code word is Seaside and the first thing that come to my mind is fun in the sun.  I have done something different on my card. I have not used any stamps, inks just used pattern paper and chipboards from Photoplay. This is my recent purchase from stamp & scrapbook expo. Thank you, Barb for this wonderful and fun code word.

Majestic Morning!!

The stamp set I used for my card today is Majestic morning bouquet from Heartfelt creations. I stamped the images in Versafine black ink and colored with Zig clean color real brush. I first applied water with a small brush to wet the surface and then applied the color so that I get light and dark shades of the same color. The sentiment die and stamp is You matter stamp set/ die from Simon says stamp
