I do Like to be beside the Seaside!

It's time for a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping and this month the theme is  Seaside.  We have Ink Art Designs as our sponsor and the Random Winner will receive a stamp from the online shop, but remember you need to use 'real' stamping to qualify.

For my seaside piece I decided on a little 3D shadow box card.  A few weeks ago Autumn made a couple and gave a little tutorial on her blog, here.   I've adapted this to use my Bigz Cabinet card die to cut the frame.  I've used Crafty Individual stamps, attaching my sunbathing beauty on the second frame.

The rest of the DT have some great inspiration for you so please pop over here.

I'm entering this at Stamping Sensations  - Anything Goes

Thanks for calling in and I hope you have a great day.

This is fabulous Avril and I love the sense of depth and perspective that you’ve given the image by creating a shadow box. I love the stamps that you’ve used to create such a perfect seaside scene and your colouring is superb. Wishing you a happy day. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

I love the colours on this, Avril... so bright and cheerful and you've achieved a brilliant sand like texture. Looks like a seaside postcard, with the brightly coloured beach huts - perfect..

Love the shadow box card - I do have that die, so will have to go look at the instructions later, though I'm sure we made some at a workshop...

You composed a very nice image with the two Beach Beauties. I like your colors much.
I also like to make holidays near the sea. Walking barefoot on the beach and collecting shells is the most relaxing thing for me.
Big Hugs
