Finished this, my latest make last night after a lot of deliberating. Not terribly happy with it as I don't think it looks very cohesive but I didn't find this challenge one of the easier ones. This is what we had to use this time.
The rules have changed slightly and now state that you only need to use three 'ingredients' but I have tried to use them all as previously.
I used a cream basecard and stamped the seashell border along one side using Versafine Sepia and heat embossed it. The shells were watercoloured using a combination of D.I.'s and Cosmic Shimmer. Then I scored the card to the side of the border, and added a picture which I found on a vintage images website, matted onto some brown card from my stash. I added a deckchair ticket, a computer generated 'sentiment' (cut out with a nestie) a shell button, and finally some glitter was added to the waves. I inked around the edges of the photo and the oval with black ink but it's a dreadful day for taking photo's today and this is not really visible.
Will look forward to seeing other entries for this challenge and wonder what you will think about this one?
By the way, I had a win in the office Grand National sweepstake at the weekend! My horse came first and I pocketed £40 which I spent yesterday on two new sets of nesties, how lucky am I ??
ttfn and thanks for dropping by.
PS Thanks to Eunice for lending me the seashell stamp.
