By The Seaside for Happy Daze




I made this piece for this month's challenge theme beside the seaside.
I've made a really simple piece using starfish and words by Jo Capper-Sandon for Stampotique, and mesh from Scrolls Work.

I finished it with a scrap of blue vellum, a scrap of sandpaper and a few dots of liquid pearls

I am also entering this for The St Luke's Charity challenge (Oh I do like to be beside the seaside) and a last minute entry to the Kraft Journal's anything goes challenge.

  4. I have just commented on this gorgeous card over on the Happy Daze Design Team blog.
    I lvoe absolutely everything about it. I think the main thing that "grabs" me is the striking composition and it reminds me very much of your "Clean Collage" article in CS.
    Very well done, Joanne :0)
