Beside the Sea
It's time again for our next challenge over at Cute Card Thursday, and with memories of the summer we have just had (as it's now raining), the theme is beside the sea. Our sponsor for this challenge is Heather's Hobbie Heaven, pop on over to the CCT blog to read about the prize and see the rest of the DT seaside inspiration.
I have scrambled over boxes and retrieved my Copic pens .. .. I've given up waiting for the new furniture to arrive and with Jason off on holiday next week it can stay put in the warehouse until he comes back. The image is one of my older Penny Black stamps, as is the postcard tucked in behind it, and I've coloured with my Copics - but I am out of practice and haven't got the shading quite the way I wanted. The little shells are all stamped from various collections of clear and rubber I have accumulated over the years, and again coloured with my Copics. The paper and that swirly wave are freebie magazine papers by Nitwits, and finally I've added the diecut leaf sprays and shimmery pearls, although the ones by the shells aren't showing up in the picture.
The Kreative Stamping Friends blog challenge is for summer holiday creations, and Crafty Creations are also looking for summer cards so I will enter my card with both of them.
