Welcome back! I hope that your new year is off to a great start! :)
It's time for the first House Mouse & Friends Challenge of 2010. It's hosted by our own DT Member Mary who wants you to create with the theme ***On The Beach***.
Here is my take;
HM image is stamped then colored in first with Copics & Marvy LePlume Markers. Then I pierced the corners & bottom, then ran it through the CUTTLEBUG bubble embossing folder fo a little texture. The final touches were adding the clear stickles to drink and icecubes (but I cant take the credit for that part-as that was my DH's idea). LOL.
I couldnt think of other beach embellishments; tried punched seashells, tried beach dies, tried adding nautical ropes .... but in the end, settled for MS borders & some sand colored pearls. Image is backed by Bazzill textured dark brown CS and Wallpaper. (I found this huge beach WallPaper roll at a thrift store for a dollar!!!!)It has great texture and cuts like a dream! :)
