Beach Bum

Well, it's the first of the month again, so time to launch a new challenge over on St Luke's Charity Cards Challenge and this month our challenge is "I do like to be beside the seaside".  There's a gift voucher for Quixotic Paperie as a prize this month so do pop over to the site and play along.

I created a beach scene as a collage of torn papers and printed my beach bum sentiment and stamped  the clouds over and cut them out.  I added one of the 3 beach huts from the Molly Blooms beach hut stamp which I coloured with pencils in ice-cream colours.  The "bum" image is a free digi from Leighs Paper Creation and I just love the humour in it!  I matted onto a black mat, and stuck the images on so they deliberately overhung the mat but stayed within the card edge.

Have a sunny day :-)

  1. What a fun image! Glad he or she isn't wearing a thong! Great colouring and I love the torn paper - it looks just like waves on the sea. Hugs, Lesley

  2. This really made me smile! Great texture and depth in your card with the torn paper and layering. The beach hut is fab (and probably worth a fortune!!) - super card!

  3. What a brilliant card, it did make me giggle !!!
    Gorgeous Summery colours and perfect layout.


  4. Hi Tara, super fun card...I fear this is what I'd look like laying on a beach and probably worse lying on my back!!!!
    Love the torn paper sea :)
    Thanks for your kind words.
