Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog - Kym's Inspiration Post - Monday 20 July 2015

It is Monday and therefore time for me to show you my Inspiration Post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog.

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "sparkle and shine".  It would be lovely if you could take part.
This week the Design Team were given the choice of using an image from the section "mermaid/ocean" in the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Etsy Store.  I decided to use this stunning image called "Far Away Messages".  I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers and kept the colour scheme to pastel colours.

I have used two different patterned Crafty Individuals seaside backing papers that I have had for some time but like them so much I didn't want to use them.  I need therapy now that I've used two papers for the front and two for the inside!!!  The sentiments I have used are from my Joy! Crafts "Under the Sea" stamp set along with the shells which I have stamped, coloured with my Promarkers and cut round to add to my card.

The card has been kept quite simple and just finished off a pearl and an organza and satin ribbon bow.
