Beach Fun.

Good morning all, and welcome to Friday, and another new follower....thank you so much C.J. For joining us , pull up a chair , relax and enjoy our crafty journey.....Plus we have a new challenge over at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge Blog...

Challenge 143- Beach Fun and is hosted by the lovely Gina....it is sponsored by Sheri Baldy Designs- My Besties.....

Here is my Dt piece...

As always I have taken photos as I created my design...I started with a piece of Gelli card, a sun mask , some torn paper, ink and my stencil brush...

I started with the sky...I do like to add some pink / peach into my sky...

Oh and look at my torn paper, it is a piece that I have already used to test my stamps....always a thrifty crafter...

Next some sea...

Followed by some sand...

And Then some sun.....sea the picture building up....

Next came this gorgeous stamp from Clarity.....BeachBabies...one of my all time favourites....

Hope you are keeping up....Some bunting...

 

Some shells...

With some colour.

Some sand..

Oh and a message

In a bottle..

Some wonderful flowers from Sweet Lilac Flowers....

Now they have a challenge over at their blog too....why not pop over...you could win a hamper of these beauties... http://sweetlilacflowers.blogspot.co.uk

 

And all in all the card design is complete....I do hope that you like it...

Here is a closer look, I do love the colour of these leaves..

Oh and glossy accents in the sea..

Thanks for looking in today...I do hope you have a lovely weekend planned...fingers crossed for some good weather...

Enjoy....and be kind ...

Love and hugs...
