Sun, sea, sand....

And beach huts! After wracking my brain for this at sea challenge.......

I went to my Pink Petticoat digis (which sadly are no longer available) After a lot of cutting and pasting and positioning I came up with a row of sweet beach huts in pastel colours. I decided to add to their focus with a couple of simple embossed lines.

The stamped (young!? Haha) lady is from acid drops and whatnots and I could just picture her strolling back to the huts in the distance...I stamped her in a tan colour and kept her colouring minimal, just a light tan for her body with watercolour pencils and a bit of blue for the bow and hat as I didn't want to detract from the beach huts. The sentiment

Two of a kind..........

First of all apologies if my photos arent too good as I seem to have problem with my device and pictures are strange colours.....!

I love clean and simple lines so by using plain white card, some designer papers (I think these are Echo park but Im not sure - I found this small book of lovely design papers in TK Max!!) and simply using two flower stamps from the same set stamp I white heat embossing them on a pink floral paper and adhered loosely over vellum which has a piece of the same designer paper underneatha couple of simple embossed for a bit of interest and dimension  and finished with a smile sentiment then added a few clear sparkly sequins to add some sparkle and shine to the sentiment.....

entered into Simply Less is More lucky-dip-week-274

look forward to using more of these papers arent they lovely, perhaps someone recognises them?
