Well hello there!
Thanks for stopping by and checking out the new challenge from The Male Room. Challenge #150 has the theme Water/Beach.
I don’t tend to make many beach themed cards, maybe because I live in the middle of the UK and don’t often go to the beach! So this theme really got me thinking. I remembered a stamp set I received with Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine and wanted to use it as I hadn’t yet had chance to ink it up.
I wanted to keep the colour scheme simple with just blue, black and white. I gave the sky and sea a watercolour wash after I had stamped the lighthouse and gull.
I layered the focal image onto a slightly larger layer of blue card. I then used foam tape to adhere this to a layer of white card that I have embossed straight lines across. I was reflecting the white planks of a beach hut and it does look good but it’s difficult to pick up on the photo! I wrapped this panel with bakers twine and then attached this to the card blank with more foam tape. Finally I heat embossed the sentiment onto a blue card flag and attached.
I am really pleased with how this card turned out. I hope you like it too and will join us in the challenge. Inspire me with some beach themed cards! Don’t forget to take a look at the brilliant Design Team makes too.
I would like to wish AAA Birthday challenge a very happy birthday and enter this card into their challenge #25.
I would also like to enter into the May Anything Goes with Watercolour challenge over at Happy Little Stampers.
See you again soon!
