There's a brand new challenge starting over at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog and this week's challenge and is all about ~ M Is For....?? So what are you going to create? M could stand for the month of May, mist, markers, magenta, mowed lawn, metal, millinery, a masculine project or mounted stamps! There are so many options and we can't wait to see what you come up with!!
For my piece, I chose M is for...mini matchbox and I'm taking you on a seaside adventure and tried to encapsulate everything about a beautiful day on the beach, collecting seashells and having the sand between your feet. As always, I really hope you love what I've made...
The next stage was to add some texture and I used Wendy Vecchi's Crackle Embossing Paste and applied it with a palette knife onto random areas of the front and sides of the box and then used the white Embossing Paste through a PaperArtsy stencil to add the look of the bubbles.
So, I really hope you've enjoyed today's photo tutorial of how I made this little seaside scene and that you loved what I've shared with you all. As always, for more great ideas and inspiration, then you need to look no further than the blog to see all the wonderful creations from my very talented Design Team members and every week, one lucky random participant has the chance to win a $50 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp. Good luck....
