Wish You Were Here

Hi Everyone

No I'm not on holiday, as the title might suggest but I couldn't think of a better title for the card. I have been to Scarborough, sunny Scarborough on this occasion but no further afield than that. I have been watching lots of fabulous football though, hence the lack of a card.

I bought this stamp at a recent stamp fair. Whatever happened to unmounted stamps being cheaper? This stamp cost me £8.00. Can you believe that? However, because I absolutely love anything to do with the seaside I had to have it as soon as I saw it. Look at this pair, they look as happy as a couple of little of sandpipers. And another blue and yellow card as well!

I wanted to make this look like they were among the sea and sand but I didn't have a bit of sandpaper for the beach and I think I've overdone the glitz a bit. Never mind, I like it.

My card recipe:
Image: Beach Huts Friends by Stamposaurus (there are two - this is the large image)
Coloured with Promarkers
Papers: Nitwits Collections - Sandcastles
Cardstock: Coredinations
Embellishments: All from stash except the shells which are from the seashore
Gold Glammour Dust
Sentiment: Computer generated

I didn't use any tools or anything on this card but I did layer the image 3 times to give it a bit of depth. I wanted it to look as if they were inside their wee beach hut.

I can enter this card for these challenges:
PaperPlay: It's Sunny Here and you must have a Sun or Sunglasses on your card
Cute Card Thursday: Recyle or reuse something. I've recycled my seashells
Sew Many Cards: Anything Goes
ABC - Xtra Dimension: I've given the hut a lot of 3d. and the embellishments are 3d.

That's it for just now. I hope you like it.

Thanks for looking.

Love this card Lynne, really does give you the impression they are inside the beach hut. Know what you mean about the cost of non wooden stamps now, as soon as something becomes popular ,they bump up the prices and as a born Fifer, now living in SouthLanarkshire, I like to be canny with my pennies, well I try to xx Doreen
