One of the fabulous things about the team weekend is the stamp library. The library is a collection of sets that everyone has brought in for others to use, which is a great way to have access to a set that you're not quite sure about, or are dying to get but the budget hasn't stretched that far yet. I'm not much of a beachy person, so the Just Beachy set didn't appeal to me when I saw it in the Mini catalogue. However, I've seen many wonderful things done with it. For this card I was combining a colour and a sketch challenge (based on a card on p55 of the main catty), but I was determined not to do an autumnal card and I was finding it really hard to figure out what to do... so I went over to the stamp library and cruised all the sets there. This one suddenly jumped out at me, and it all fell into place pretty quickly after that. The card and sun were stamped on Whisper White with Chocolate Chip ink and I let that be for a while - to make sure the ink was really dry - before colouring with markers. The sentiment comes from the new rub-on pack Fashion District.
