Crafts-Too Challenge You(C2cu)- Challenge #2 -Summer Days - Twist 2 - Beach Colours

Good Morning and welcome to Twist 2 of our August Challenge - Summer Days.  This time we would like you to use some beach colours

Here is my creation which I hope will give an idea of what we are looking for, or perhaps even give some inspiration.

For this easel card I have used from my pack from Crafts-Too  - buttons, ribbon and the striped backing paper. The Beach Hut and shell stamps used came from the free set with Creative Stamping (I think Issue 10).  I thought the beige buttons looked a bit like pebbles and I used the blue striped ribbon to look like a wave. The beach huts are coloured with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils.

I look forward to seeing more of the wonderful creations that we have been receiving.

p.s.  I won't be making any comments for a while I am afraid but my fellow team members will be doing my turns for me.  


  1. Hi Carol
    Lovely card, I like the beach scene.
    You asked me a question about putting tatting and parchment together, well I have see today's post.

  2. I love these beach huts Carol, they bring back many memories of summers spent at Weymouth as a child, we always had a beach hut for the week we were there.

    Hope everything goes well for you.

  3. A fabulous card Carol, I love beach huts as much as I love light houses, and they always remind me of my Mum and Dad who holidayed in their later years at Swanage.
    Take care of yourself, thinking of you.
