Each week, I am challenged to create something new, and often, I try to maximize my efforts. For this weeks Color My Heart Color Dare, I found the perfect color combination for one of my upcoming Inked Background Workshop cards. Our Sapphire, Glacier, New England Ivy, White Daisy and Desert Sand Ink colors were a perfect combination to create this Oceanside scene for a retirement card. Can’t you just picture yourself spending the rest of your days on this beach?
This card is part of my No Worries Inked Background Card Workshop which you can attend in July. If you are one of my long-distance followers, you can purchase the Workshop Guide and follow the detailed instructions to recreate these relaxing scenes using our inks and sponging techniques.
This card uses our No Worries papers, which I had found to be one of the best paper packs to create with. You can find a list of the remaining supplies I used to create this card at the bottom of this post. Please feel free to ask questions about the card, my upcoming workshop, and the products used on this card.
Here’s a Quick Tip when using our inks and sponges. I have found that it works best to cut our Round Sponge into sixths, then attach one end of the sponge into a Binder Clip. I have each of mine labeled with the color name on the top of the Binder Clip and they all fit into bin on my desk. This keeps my hands a little cleaner and prevents my ink pads from getting contaminated with other colors.

Marie, thank you for the wonderful complements. I have been praying about this and at this time and I not sure I can add it to my schedule. Hopefully, in the future because it defiantly sounds like fun.
Oh my your inked background is fabulous! Love how you paired it up with the wood paper. I can hear the seagulls just looking at your card! Thanks for sharing with us at Color My Heart. Your artwork is always inspiring!
Thank you so much Michelle! 🙂 I am having fun creating these backgrounds. I can’t wait to be able to teach my workshop.
Thanks for joining us at the Color My Heart Color Dare. You’re card looks like a beach I would like to be on. Hope you’ll share our challenge with your friends and earn our buddy badge.
I’m looking out the cabin window and see a very inviting beach scene…your background sponging is beautiful and so inviting. Thanks for sharing with us at Color Dare this week, and, like Marie, it sure would be fun to see you as a DT member some time in the future…love your creations.
