C&S Inspirations from Clare Lloyd

The new GD on PaperArtsy this week is Clare Lloyd - she has shown us some fantastic bright and cheerful projects.  I decided to have a go at a card in her style of less is more - always harder than it sounds.  I made the first border using some small montage stamps I have but then couldn't find anything to finish the card off with.

I'll come back to this one another day. Next I decided to go oriental using stamps from Lynne Perrella LPC022.  I repeatedly stamped the small stamp in the strip I'd masked off.  The main image is stamped then colour washed in Beach Hut FP.  I liked the way the water warped the paper slightly so I've kept this as part of the design by attached it with silicon glue. Could help but add one little charm !
