City Crafter 274

Hello!

I'm hosting the new challenge over at City Crafter today
For the challenge I have chosen a collage to inspire you which was created by the lovely 


These image really captured my heart ... made me think of days gone by... British beaches, salty breezes, shell collecting and the muddy grey waters that often match the sky

The challenge is to create a card or project based on the photos 
 You can use any of the elements - Shells, houses etc, or maybe just pick out the colours or even create a beach themed project

Here's what I came up with


It kind of speaks for itself really....


Sponging, stamping... a little white paint smeared onto some torn DP


I got that little stone from my garden and coated it in glossy accents

For the next 3 weeks we are happy to welcome a Special Guest Designer to CCCB the talented Suchi ... Please click on her name to go visit her lovely blog...

I'm really looking forward to seeing your creations this week ... you always amaze me!

Have a lovely day

If there is one theme I invariably connect with you, it's the beach theme. And this card is another exquisite example from your desk!

Yes, I think our great minds were thinking alike again! But your composition is particularly clever - the way you've arranged those elements at the base is gorgeous and the paint totally looks like surf.
