Today, we are taking a stroll on the Boardwalk.  Maybe there are Boardwalks here in Michigan, but I don't think I've ever seen one, but that's OK, we can still take a walk in our imagination, right?

My card today was inspired by a card I saw from Linda Heller at

Today's card uses one of the beautiful designer paper patterns from Waves of the Ocean.  These designs are all so pretty!  I'm told that the inspiration behind them was from paintings made using the Paint and Pour Technique.  Have you tried that Technique?  I would love to try it, but I'd really like to do it someplace other than in my house.  I make a big enough mess with paper and ink.  I don't want to think about the mess I would make with pouring paint over something!

I thought the colors in this paper looked a bit like the ocean as it rolls and foams up over the beach as the water starts to recede.  What do you think?

To make the Boardwalk I used designer series paper from the Heart & Home Collection.  To give it a little more realistic and a bit of an aged look I snipped a "V" between each board.  I then used a sponge dauber to add some Basic Gray "grunge" along the edge of the Boardwalk.

I repeated that same process around the sentiment.

The Poles and Pelican were stamped with Black Memento ink and then colored with Stampin' Blends.  I did cut a little notch in the Boardwalk, so I could slightly inset the poles into the Boardwalk.  I thought this made them look more like they are a part of the dock.

For the Inside of the card, I kept it clean and simple.

I just used a strip of the same Waves of the Ocean designer series paper inset in a strip of Night of Navy.  A sentiment can be added later once I determine who will receive the card.

You can also see a small peek of the envelope flap in the various photos.  I covered it with a different portion of the same sheet used for the card front.
