That Craft Place - Nautical

Morning lovely peeps...we have a new challenge over at That Craft Place today - Nautical
and I've challenged myself to do something a little different :-)

ok so not a little bit different...a LOT different.... but i really enjoyed having a play...and it's always good to challenge yourself now and again :-) 
I used a distress tool to rough up the egges of my card and papers then added white acrylic paint...for extra texture i painted on the snow writer and added some sand and  a couple of tiny shells i had in my stash...the image is "Sunset at Sea" from Delicious Doodles which I've coloured with copic ciao.

Shopping List
Bazzill Basics paper - Beach House
White Acrylic Paint
Decoart snow writer
MDF lazer cut shells
Blue bakers twine

You'll find all this and much more at the TCP facebook shop

I've coloured up the super gorgeous "A Time To Share"

So, these scrummy papers were a real bargain...they're called Simple Stories - summer fresh and were just £2.99 from TK Max :-)...the little clouds and sentiment are part of the paper stack and i've also used them to paper piece the umbrella... i've also added a little washi tape, gems and a few paper flowers.

I've coloured with copics and also used them to darken up areas of the patterned paper for the umbrella.
