Our latest challenge at Crafty CardMakers is being hosted by Lin, who has chosen the theme 'Fun in The Sun' - think she's testing her memory!!
We have as always two great sponsors - Saturated Canary and Sir Stampalot - so to be in with a chance of grabbing one of their fab prizes come and join us - (just make sure you follow the challenge rules as shown on the blog!)
I used this yummy image from Krista called 'Toes in the Sand' - isn't she just gorgeous - and obviously all that surfing has contributed to her amazing WAISTLINE!!!
The backing paper is from Raspberry Road and I distressed and inked the edge with Antique Linen DI.
Image was coloured with promarkers, cut out and mounted onto 3d foam pads for a bit of dimension.
The 'Beach Rules' sign is also from Raspberry Road and it seemed to fit perfectly! I used some old twine and a few brads to secure.
The hessian was torn from pieces in my stash, the shells have been collected from various holidays (see- I do sometimes do more than just laze about in the sun!! LOL) and the beautiful green sea glass was a present from a fellow crafter.
A little peek at the inside -
same papers and other elements used and added a tiny silver sea horse to the bottom of the frame which has been left blank to write on.
