Abstract Beachy Waves

Good morning...so kind of you to pop in for a visit.
This morning, I am playing along with the Clean and Simple Challenge called 'Let's Get Beachy' at Splitcoast.  I took a more abstract approach and decided to depict the waves on my card.

I began by stamping the swirls with a stamp I got at Scrapfest this year made by Rosewood Canada.  It is a small stamp so I stamped it twice on the paper and then embossed it using white powder.  
Then came the fun part, sprinkled on the Brusho powder, sprayed with water and watched the colours emerge.  I love that part!!  
I mounted the piece on blue cardstock then pop dotted it onto my card front.  
Stamped the sentiment right underneath it.

Adding my card to these challenges:

Brown Sugar- ANYTHING GOES

Crafting From the Heart- ANYTHING GOES

Get Creative- MONOCHROMATIC

Not Just Cards- ANYTHING GOES


Thanks again, for coming by and taking a look.  I appreciate you!!
 Have a great week.

Supplies:  stamps- Kaisercraft, Rosewood/ wh embossing powder/ heat tool/ Brusho/ mini mister/ pop dots

Awesome colours Karen, as well as brilliant thought in developing this car, I love it..

Sigh Brushos eh? Not to worry can enjoy others. All crafty goodies are back too dear as our $ has really plummeted, and still is, the good prices were great while we had them. Good to practise some restraint. :)

Lovely monochromatic creation. Unfortunately our theme at Get Creative is "monochromatic PURPLE" so your card will not be entered on this week's prize draw.
