Welcome to another Colour Create Challenge. They are proving to be quite a hit!!
This weeks challenge is red, white and blue with the optional extra theme of 'Holidays and Travel'. Well, this was a challenge let me tell you. I nearly ended up bald with frustration :)
I could not think where to go with this one...then I remembered the 1st EVER stamp I bought was one of a row of beach huts...bizarre choice but there you go!! It must have caught my eye. I think this was the ONLY stamp I have that I could associate with that theme.
So from there I went for a nautical look.
My card base is blue and I cut triangles of red cardstock matted on white. I stitched these all together and it kinda reminded me of a Union Jack or flags at nautical event?? I coloured the Beach Huts with prismas and just had to use a touch of golden yellow for the sand. The Life Ring is a Magnolia stamp and the sentiment is made from Doodlebug stickers.
For the rope edging I punched eyelets all around at 2cm intervals and pulled some chord in and out all the way round and tied at the end with a reef knot.
I decided for the inside I wanted to re-create a postcard look, keeping with the 'Holidays and Travel ' theme. Most of the elements are hand drawn apart from the 'Wish you were here ' sentiment which is Heidi Swapp rub ons.
Hope you are brave enough to join in with us this week. Go check out what the other team members have produced. I'm sure it was only me that was finding it tough...
Thanks for checking mine out :)
