At the beach

Hi and happy Sunday,

I'm very pleased to be this month's guest designer at outlawz challenges: Sunday clean and Simple.
This weeks theme is at the beach. A very appropriate theme because we have a heat wave here in the Netherlands this week.

I made two cards.




On the first card I used a digital stamp from hand made harbour: Beach huts
Colored in Photoshop.

On the second card I used an image (and sentiment) from this month's sponsor at outlawz CAS Sunday:  deedee's digis.

I would like to enter also in these challenges:


Have a great Sunday! Keep it Cool!

Hugs Henriëtte.

I colored it in Photoshop.

Anchor

Hi,

Nautical is not really my theme but I had this cute felt/fabric anchor in my stock for a long time and wanted to use it.

The perfect paper for my sea themed card.


The card is kept clean and simple. I just cut out a few hexagons in different sizes using the nautical paper.
Looked for a nice sentiment and added the anchor.
