Here's my little card for the Creative Inspirations DT color challenge - Beach Dreamin'. I just love the traditional beach huts they have dotted along the beaches in England, they're such a great idea, I wish they had them in Ireland! I hope you're familiar with them anyway! My aim was for a bright and cheery card, bunting and buttons always helps with this I think!
I simply drew the little beach hut, measured out the stripes and painted them in Creative Inspirations Royal Blue and Winter Frost. When the Royal Blue was dry I went back over them in Tanzanite but I left an edge of the Royal Blue. I used Sunshine on the roof and door frame. I added a little brad for the door handle and painted that in Sunshine too.
I made the sky blue background with blending chalks. I had already sewn around the edges in white thread, I went over the stitching with the blue blending chalk, I really like how it turned out! I stamped the sentiment in the same Royal Blue Creative Inspirations Paint. Don't forget to have a peek at the rest of the DT ideas at the Creative Inspirations blog. I hope you're all enjoying some summer sun, we're lucky we have some here at the moment!!
