That's Crafty! - By the sea




Hi everyone,

It's time again for another fortnightly challenge over at That's Crafty! with the theme: By the sea. 
So we'd love to see all things sea related, be it on, near or under the sea so quite a wide scope to play with I think ;)

Come and play along and you could be in with a chance of winning this:




Just in time for the new Carabelle stamps in the shop!

I did a painting on wood for this with a girl looking rather mournfully out to sea, maybe missing home or a loved one?

A Bright Beauty

Hi everyone,

Hope you are all okay out there.....Spring was here in the UK briefly but now we have a deluge of rain!

Lovely Rachel, the owner of Darkroom Door stamps, was extremely kind to send me some stamps to have a little play with.....yes I know I am very lucky! Many of you already know what wonderful quality they are so it was really fun having a little stamping session ;)

Here's the card I made and this was also the first time I was trying out my Zig Clean Color pens...hmmm, still on a learning curve with them...they are sooooo bright!








I am entering this into the following challenges:

Country view Challenges, Use a stencil
Stamping Sensations, Anything Goes
Take it,Make it, Anything Goes
Simon says Weds, Flowers



Darkroom Door stamps used are: Flower lady and Brushed Daisies, Crafters Workshop stencil, Dylusions sprays, Zig Clean Color pens, stickles.
