I originally made this card for the challenge at CAS Mix Up which is a watercolour one with the theme of 'Beach'.
But when I'd finished it I decided that the watercoloured panel which was a die cut piece lying on the desk, was too big and there wasn't a lot of white space left so did other cards for the challenge!
This one is completely different to my launch card (which is here) - but I enjoyed trying my hand again at watercolouring a background!
When I was a child, my Mum used to take me to the beach as a rare treat - whenever I see a beach hut I always remember how I loved them then - with their bright colours standing like sentries in a row!
After watercolouring (and patting myself on the back because I managed to actually paint the fence freehand 😊) I did a little stamping to create mounds of sand and grass.
The beach huts were stamped, coloured then fussy cut all from small scraps of card!
The (old had it years) distressed style sentiment stamp reminded me of driftwood and just seemed to sum up my feelings of the time spent with my Mum on warm sunny days in the sand.
