The warmer weather is finally here (for the time being anyway) and thoughts turn to holidays, lazy walks along the beach and all things summer. Luckily, there are three blog challenges which allow me to combine this theme into one project. So I'm entering this tag into the following challenges:
FASHIONABLE STAMPING CHALLENGES - Tag Time
I started with a square of card which I covered with torn pieces of pale peach paper to give texture and resemble the sandy beach. In the past I've used DIY sandpaper to great effect but I liked the colour contrast and decided to shy away from the obvious materials.
The stamped tag is a Crafty Individuals' plain tag, inked with Distress Ink in Broken China and Milled Lavender. I stamped the twigs using an Inkylicious stamp and DI Pumice Stone and then the seahorse, which was a free stamp from Crafty Individuals, in DI Vintage Photo. I stamped the seahorse again onto acetate using black StazOn and cut out.
The Seagull picture is from Crafty Individuals' Miniatures, People & Places 2 and the stamping on the ribbons is from a seashell stamp which was free with the July 2010 issue of Craft Stamper Magazine.
