I have been doing work for Docrafts this week and also for Funky Hand. Anice is bringing out a new seasonal download that is absolutely gorgeous. I can almost forgive her for making me do something far before I usually do...
What I can show you is my Daring card for the week. Due to poor Jo's computer problems we came up with a team dare this week.
Down by the Sea
Of course we don't just enjoy being by the sea in the Summer, it doesn't matter what the season is, the seaside is a great place to be, so this week we'd love you to make cards with any sort of seaside theme.Ages ago I bought some Sheetload clear and frosted acetate cards. I can't rate their customer service and price enough. But I did panic for ages as to how to use them. I am getting to grips now, partly by following some of the designs featured on their blog. So I decided to make my seaside card a frosted one
The whole card uses crafty purchases of days gone by!
I bought the papers in a kit by Funkykits a few years ago and almost threw them out this week! The seashell paper was stuck on the inside cover and the stripy paper torn and layered to be "waves". I opened my neglected box of charms and found three nautical ones (anchor, starfish and um, flip flop). This gold net stuff has been on the floor of the craft area for ages. When I tidy up I put it on a shelf and it falls off again. SO I scrunched it up to be netting. The stamps used are Purple Onion ones from Self Addressed kits. Oh I did use a new brown stazon ink.
to be honest I am not sure about the card, but it will get used! I do love the work of the other team members this week. Rush over to Daring Cardmakers and, er, surf through the seaside cards!!!!
