Tattered Lace September Challenge

Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Woohoo one more sleep and I go on holiday tomorrow. Getting excited now!

Today sees the start of our new challenge over at Tattered Lace

This month's theme is Holidays!

How apt as I am off on my holiday tomorrow, here is my creation I have used Tattered Lace Postcard and Bucket and Spade dies. There is a comprehensive list of all Tattered Lace dies here.

Step by Step

1. A5 white landscape card which I have cut the corners with X-cut corner punch.
2. The first layer is gold pearlescent card.
3. I printed the image which is Elisabeth Bell's "Best Friends" onto Supersmooth and coloured with Spectrum Noirs and cut out with Spellbinder Fleur de lys rectangle die. I added Frantage to represent sand. I then matted and layered onto purple pearlescent card and adhered to base card.
4. Using script card I cut out the Tattered Lace postcard die and wrote "wish you were here", using yellow card cut out the Bucket and Spade dies.
5. To finish off I have added 3 shells from my stash and a small urchin.

Many thanks for stopping by Today
Happy Crafting 
Hugs xxxxx
