I need Vitamin Sea

Long time no see and here I am, needing Vitamin Sea. I'm sure most of you are looking forward to the Summer Holidays too. No alarm clock, no run to the morning bus and best of all, long lazy days with a picnic hamper close by. Easy living at it best :)

Challenges I would like to enter:
CASology: Medicin
Pixie´s Snippets Playground: Snippets for the images and the white card stock
Snarky Stampers: B is for Beach

Materials used:
- A Stamplorations stencil coloured in with Distress inks onto a left over white cardstock piece. I added some shimmer onto the coloured areas with a Wink of Stella and small dots with a white Posca Pen.
- Stamplorations images stamped with black Memories ink onto a scrap, the were coloured with Cut'n' Dry pen nibs and Distress Inks. The images were cut out and mounted with 3D pads.
- The text was stamped with Exchangeables Alphabet stamps.
- The purple cardstock is DCVW.

Thank you so much for visiting, it means a lot! Hope you're having a lovely weekend with some time for crafting. I've been so busy at work and came down with pneumonia last week, so I'm enjoying a relaxing and quiet weekend. Today I'm having a Pajama day with fresh oat muffins, a cuppa and a black and white film.

Love and hugs
