Crafty Individuals June 2013 Challenge

Well here it is, finally got a photo but not sure how I did it. :)


Here goes, my crafting friend and I decided to have a  crafting day. So, after dropping off at school, popping to local shop for essentials (cakes) and having a fast burst of cleaning activity, we finally sat down to get messy.
We started with an unpainted wooden beach hut, painted it with Paperartsy paints (love them), I added an embossed metal on card roof (notebook) for texture with a little rose paint to dull the brightness of metal.
Using some old sizzix thin dies we cut out a fence and seagulls (painted them) and suspended them with a metal thread to give the impression of a flying bird.
My girls gave me some tiny shells they had collected years ago to go round the bottom and I used distress embossing powder for the sand effect.
Finally we stamped the lovely beach lady and bunting by Crafty Individuals on cream card and used vintage photo distress ink around the edge to give it a softer appearance.
We also papered the inside which was not an easy task.
That's it for my first ever post. 
Bye for now.
