Well I'd love to go but unfortunately it's a busy day here in my household. lol
Please excuse the quality of the photo, a. it's a very grey murky day here and b. the camera wouldn't keep still (yep, I was shaking).
I have another class on Friday with my ladies from Mackay.
Due to the fact that I love beach themed papers and embellishments, there will be quite a few beach/boat/fishing themed cards in the coming weeks. I only hope the ladies won't get tired of them.
This card uses Graphic 45 By The Sea range of papers and stamps. The sketch is from LOTV ideas to inspire sketch. I started with a base of Stampin' Up Naturals White. The blue layer is retired Not Quite Navy. The check out of By The Sea is gorgeous. I added two panels of the starfish/anemone paper as per sketch and that's where I went off on a tangent. The finished card looks nothing like the sketch. Oh well, so be it.
The sign and wording 'To The Beach' are stamps which match the Graphic 45 By The Sea range of papers. The birds and grass are Impression Obsession dies and the umbrella is a Memory Box die. The birds have been sponged with Weathered Wood distress ink.
I added shells, fussy cut from the papers, I think there is a check on the other side. Then a piece of fishing net with some actual shells attached finished off the card.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog.
Hope you like my card.
