Marvelous new challenge at Allsorts for this week! Anything Goes with Option for a Scene. Prizes this week: three images from Ruth Hamilton Design and a stamp from our hostess.
Well, as I design my team card for the challenge I am attending a crafting weekend at the Coastal Retreat. It's a huge house in Ocean City that 9 of us rent twice a year. It's a short walk to the beach, and the house is full of collections and antiques. Each room has a theme with handmade quilts in every space. I'm the only paper crafter here - all others are cross-stitching, quilting, or wood burning. So fun!!
I adore the ocean and spent every summer of my childhood at ocean either in Rhode Island or The Cape. Now that I live on the west coast I go to the coast whenever possible. Trip east to visit my brother coming up in June.
For my card I have used two long retired (and beloved) CTMH sets. I cut the sand fence and popped it on top. All was colored with pencil and a bit of ink blending for sky and sand. I did some ink cube dragging on the kraft card base to give it a wood look.
I hope you will create a fun scene and join the challenge at Allsorts!
