Good morning folks, we're having the most gorgeous summer weather here. Perfect for a trip to the beach. Our new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges is Childs Play chosen by my lovely DT sister Esther. I've created a beach themed project for my DT offering. As always there is a fab prize of a $20 Flonzcraft voucher for our lucky winner and of course there is the honour of a top 3 place up for grabs too. Don't forget you must ensure that stamping is the focal point of your project, digistamps aren't allowed.
I've used backing papers and bits and bobs from Graphic 45, love love love these papers!
The focal image was stamped with some old favourite stamps from Joanna Sheen, coloured with PanPastels and coloured pencils. I added some texture around the image using Maimeri Light Modelling Paste and a Crafters Workshop Woodgrain stencil, once the paste was dry I coloured with PanPastels and distressed the edges.
I've layered the image up over come cheesecloth, added some tiny shells and some twine to finish off.
I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Artistic Stamper: by the seaside
Crafty Little Fairies: summer fun
Creative Card Crew: beach/sea
