A Far Away Friend

A friend recently moved permanently to Harris in the Outer Hebrides. She was married on a beach there a couple of years ago.  How romantic is that?  I have seen many photos of the beautiful scenery that she wakes up to every morning.  I hope to visit her some day.







So when I saw the latest challenge at Addicted to CAS was.....


....I decided to play along and use Harris as my inspiration.

I used a brayer to apply Distress Inks ( Scattered Straw, Peacock Feathers, Peeled Paint) for the sand, sea and land, tearing paper to  delineate each section. I lightly applied D I Stormy Skies with a sponge to create the sky. The card that was used is from  Clarity Stamp which has a shiny surface and takes to ink well.  The finished image was mounted on to a 6" by 6" textured card.  No sentiment this time.
