On the beach

This week's challenge at CD Sundays is "On the beach".

I was surprised to find, on searching through my CDs, that the only beach related images I had were on the Viva La Divas CD which I used last week, so didn't want to use again so soon, and on The Best of La Pashe 2012 - and one of the DT had already made a great card with that one.

So I searched through the images on the Hot Off The Press CD "5,400 Tags & Art" and found quite a few beach-y ones, but rather than print out all the tiny tags and images and try to assemble them into something, I took the sunbathing ladies image and blew it up to the size of a topper before printing out that and a complementary smaller image.

Then I picked out a piece of kraft paper I'd been avoiding because the colour wasn't quite right for most things.... too "sandy"...... and made a 6" square card blank out of it. I stamped the shells down one edge in Versamark then matted my images onto black card and added them along with a few pieces of black Candi.

We were in Cornwall the week before last and we didn't get any sitting on the beach weather - so I'll just have to look at this and daydream!

  6. Well done for seeing beyond the image as a tag and blowing it up to a good size. It's a great image and a super card. Thank you for joining us again this week.
