Life's A Beach

Hi everyone and welcome to my new followers, today for my DT card I'm showcasing some more of the wonderful New Release dies at Cheery Lynn Designs with this beach scene card which could easily adapt for Memory Books and Scrapbook Pages.

I die cut my Life's a Beach in brown cardstock - notice the fabulous texture of it looking like an old washed up log on a beach, so cool. I mounted on to a piece of white cardstock which I had inked with shades to compliment my card. I then went around the outline of the letters with a Glaze pen to make them 'pop' and added a little twine.

My waves were layered twice adding some shells and a little starfish which I coloured with a Copic Pen. 

My Reeds and Cat Tails were cut out in coloured cardstock adding in some dried grass from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by today and for all your wonderful comments on my Perfume bottles, they made my day.
