Life is a BEACH

Hello and Welcome to my Saturday post for
It's our Word Week and Hosting is Maria choosing
a very Summery Word - BEACH.
You all know that it's not Summer in my neck of the woods
but it's a good excuse to create a beach scene for when it will be.
This was a lot of fun to make taking my mind off the cold weather.
There were lots of bits & bobs added here starting with
the background sky using Distress Inks and Blue Wax.
The sand is made from heated Embossing Enamel
followed by Embossing Powder.
Stamp set is from Inkadinkado Flamingo Fun.
Added a few coconuts to the tree and on the sand
and some sea shells.
Sentiment is heat embossed on vellum.
Attached to coloured card stock.

Hope you will pop over and see what our
August Guest Designer - Talented Ros Crawford from
and the Team created for your inspiration.
A big Welcome to you Ros -
so happy to have you join us this month.
I'm sure you will have fun with this challenge.
See you in the Gallery.
Thanks for dropping in
