Beach Huts!!!

I bought these lovely beach hut stamps at a craft fair the other day from Little Claire and I absolutely love them!!!!  They stamp beautifully and can be used in lots of ways as they come in a set.  You can find them here.

I decided to go for a vintage look so I used Tea Dye Distress Ink for the background and co-ordinating Promarkers for the image.

The backing paper has starfish all over it and was a freebie that I downloaded.  I tried to use a few different textures on the card, the rik rak is supposed to be the sea and the starfish was made from cork with some distress stickles on it.  I threaded some twine through a button and frayed the twine to give it a more distressed look!

The sentiment was another stamp from the Beach Hut set which I cut with Labels 1 Nesties and edged with a Bronze Star Sakura pen.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges

Truly Scrumptious - Vintage (26 April)
Stamping Vacation - No Black Ink (12 May)
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Distressing (17 April)
Art Impressions Stamps - Anything Goes (20 April)
