Travelling back in time

I hope you aren't terribly sick of my frames yet as they are one of the things I *love* to alter!

I love it when I see a set that I immediately have a vision for creating with. When I saw this set, Traveller, from Clear & Simple Stamps, I knew I wanted to do another frame (surprise, surprise). This set will be available tomorrow as one of the new releases. Wait until you see all the awesome sets they will be releasing this month!

This was a picture I took on our cruise back in April. This picture was taken at Grand Turks which was my favorite stop of them all. This picture just takes me back to laying on the beach just enjoying the view.

I've had this frame laying around for about a year, just waiting to be altered. I originally tried painting this a shimmery blue but was not happy with it so covered it with this CTMH paper I've had in my stash that I thought would be perfect. A little worn, weathered look with a nice warm blue.

Hope this makes your day feel a little brighter!

Frame Details:
Stamp Set: Traveller by Clear & Simple Stamps
Cardstock/Paper: Designer paper by CTMH
Inks: Blue Bayou & Baja Breeze, Tim Holtz Distress Ink (tea dye)
Accessories: corkboard, twill ribbon (unknown source), circle & labels trio nestabilities, wood frame
