Santa At the Beach Another Christmas card in July

Again I used the same Santa at the Beach Image, I was nearly have no Mojo to make this card and I have a bit discussion with Pia and Billie my sweet friend, they helped me with some idea, many thanks Pia and Billie :) so happy to have you as my Crafting friends...I try to use again this Image cause the Photo Inspiration this time is at the beach.

After print the Image I colored it with Akashiya SAI watercolor marker. I sponged also the sky. After that I stamped some Images from Hero Arts, things that you always can seen at the beach. After that I stamped the plain blue paper with tiny gift Stamp from Hero Arts.

Last I stamped the star fish and colored with orange and yellow watercolor marker.  This is not my style so many images on a card...not CAS card from me...also I am out of my comfort zone this time :) and hope you like the result :) I am happy because I can use all the set from that old Hero Arts Beach stamp set.  

I normally like to make CAS card as you know :) here is the whole card finished, the sentiment come from the same set, only the Warmest Wishes is from Holiday Saying (Hero Arts).

One more picture of my card:

  5. We used the same image for this challenge. Normally your card is more CAS than mine, but this time we've switched roles it seems. Your card is extra summery and beach styled with those fun stamped images you've included around the Santa. It feels great to use your stamps doesn't it. Looking great!
    Thank you so much for the birthday card and gift. Looking forward to play with the items. Won't be until next weekend I guess, I'm getting my 9 year old nephew on visit tomorrow. He'll stay till Sunday when we will go this place and celebrate his little brother's first birthday.
