Congratulations, please email me with your address.
Something different from me today, and not a card in sight. When I saw the Beach Huts from the new Noor! Design release I knew exactly what I wanted to do, and this is the first of the huts that I have changed into a Welcome sign.
I used the new Mask Art Grunge stencil to give some texture, then rubbed over the raised pattern with metallic wax to give more definition

I am so fed up with all this rain, I needed a summery pick me up and what better than Little Sun Kissed Summer Sweetness from Whimsy Stamps? Bright and cheerful with a touch of vintage. I’ve had these papers for a while now and wasn’t feeling them ….. till I started pulling out delish flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and I was set.

Skin – E11, 00, 000, 0000 R20
Hair – E55, 53, 51, 50

I gave the seam binding a good old scrunch to add to the vintage feel. The pearl brad I picked up at Hobbycraft, 12 for £2 (I think) – a bargain for sure. The key I got from Ebay, I bought like a hundred of them ….. what I’m going to do with that many is anyone’s guess lol.
