Lazy summer days.

Here we are already at the end on July and our last challenge of the month over at Sugar Creek Hollow.
This time the theme is 'Water, water everywhere',  make cards or other papercraft projects featuring  water, holidays, the beach, lighthouse,  ocean, boats etc. in our vintage/shabby chic style. Please pop over for all the details and see what we all made.

I decided to make this hanging.
The base is an old piece of card, which I coloured with acrylic paint and a blue dauber .
A few layers came from a Graphics 45 paper stack.
The stamped image and quote are Crafty Individual stamps.
I used Pans Pastels for extra shading and a sprinkle of seed beads just below the bathing belle.
I also added a pair of silver mules and a silver fish as a hair ornament.

Challenges I will join the fun in are-
Happy Campers -the current Challenge No 20  is Summer
Crafters Cafe   Anything Goes

  1. Love your seaside scene hanging, and the beads are a perfect touch for the sand!

  2. Lovely piece, I wish I was at the beach just now! Valerie

  3. I always love to see this stamp as it is one of my favourite CI stamps but I have to say I love that image you paired it up with.
    In fact I love their papers/images yet believe it or not, I don't any of their products - not sure why that is.
    Gorgeous creation.
    Unable to use Open ID as lots of problems with wordpress.

  4. Love the colours on this, and that fabulous shabby card as the background is so cool. The seed beads are a great touch too, and the images are just lovely for a summery feel.
