Dreaming of Summer at Fashionable Stamping




Time for anotherer challenge over at Fashionable Stamping and this time it's Dreaming of  Summer, chosen by yours truly!  We are again sponsored by Flonzcraft who are offering one lucky random winner a $20 prize to spend in their online store.  All the details, as well as some fabulous inspiration from the rest of the design team can be found on the main blog - but remember, we are a stamping challenge and we do need to see that the stamping is the focal point on the project and that this must follow the theme.
I have used Crafty Individuals  CI-278 and CI-119 and quite a bit of masking for my seaside dream.  My colouring was with chalks for the sea, sky and sand, my little huts were coloured with Distress markers.

This is a scheduled post as we hopefully  having good weather at a friend's  son's wedding in London, so will catch up with you in a few days.

I am entering this at:
  Allsorts - Splish, Splash Splosh
  The Artistic Stamper - By the Seaside
  Lunagirl Moonbeams challenge - Vintage Seashore/Bathing Beauties
  Crafting Musketeers - Summertime
  Natalie & Amy's - Smmertime
  Live & Love Crafts - By the Sea
