Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 95

This week at Crafty Cardmakers, it's my turn to host, and the challenge is 'Holidays'! We want to see something that means a holiday (as in, vacation, not festival) to you. It might be a specific destination, or it might be a general theme or feeling that means 'holiday' to you. Whatever you choose, please tell us what your project means to you so we understand the link to 'holiday'!

Our sponsors are:

See challenge blog for details.

So, to me, summer holidays mean the coast. I was born and brought up on the Clyde coast, in a town where the river was almost always visible as the town rises up from the river quite steeply. I now live well inland, and the one thing I miss is being able to see the water.

I've used a Michael Powell image which I stamped using Memento ink. I coloured with Promarkers. I matted the image in red, and then added extra layers with a scallopped edge - using a Spellbinders die. The paper is from Papermania.

The image reminds me of Gourock from the river. It's not that it really looks like that, and the hill isn't nearly steep enough! But it still reminds me, and makes me think of holiday time and taking a ferry to Argyll.

I hope you can join us this time.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Papercrafting Journey where they want 'anything but square',
