Life's a Beach....



I made this for a birthday coming up soon...and used Nicola's sketch no7 (I'm "last tram annie" again!). I loved this image as soon as I saw it (it's another of my new/unloved penny black stamps!!)....and this little sentiment just says it all really!!

I decoupaged the trees and hammock; used stickles on the sea; diamond glaze on the "sunnies" and cocktail glass; and although the basic grey mellow paper is autumnal colours I liked the suggestion of a "tropical" theme in the background!

Sooooo...crafty gals....as I am suuuuuppppper excited about booking a little holiday today...I thought of having a little fun....the first person to correctly guess the city where I am going will get a little crafty surprise from me! I'll keep this open until sunday 7pm GMT....short and sweet! bx
