It is time for another two-week challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow and it is called Water, Water, Everywhere. We want you to create your vintage or shabby chic cards or pther paper-crafted projects with the ocean or beach in mind.
For my card I used white card stock (Staples) and then created the background using Broken China, Faded Jeans and Wild Honey Distress Inks (Ranger). Then I made the water using similar colours of Adirondack Alcohol Ink (Ranger) on a piece of transparency (sorry they don't have names on the bottles - weird). The sand is just some torn kraft card stock (Recollections) that has been embossed with a Bubble Texture Fade (Tim Holtz).
I found the image online but forgot to tag it with the web site (oops - my apologies) and it is mounted on top of a tiny piece of corrugated cardboard that I swiped with some Picket Fence Distress Stain (Ranger). The beach hut was handmade using some striped paper from Free Vintage Digital Stamps, a bit of white card stock (Staples) and finished with a white button from my stash to which I added a blue card candi (Craftwork Cards).
The image, beach hut and sand were all inked with some Frayed Burlap Distress Ink (Ranger). The sun was made with a Marvy Uchida punch and inked with some Wild Honey Distress Ink (Ranger). To finish off the card I added a cluster of little shells & beads from Michaels along with some teeny roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. The pearl (in the clam shell - LOL) is a sticker from Recollections.
