Little Scrap Pieces Fun Friday - Day at the Beach

For the Prima Doll Blog Hop, click HERE

Happy Friday!! Another week that flew by in the blink of an eye!! I hope you have fun plans for the weekend :)


It's time for another Fun Friday Challenge at Little Scrap Pieces. The theme this week is one of my favorites - Day at the Beach. There is nowhere else I'd rather be than the beach :)


The inspiration for this easel card is a row of colorful cottages I passed once on Cape Cod. The beach huts are from Artistic Outpost's Boardwalk stamp set. They were colored with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and a TH waterbrush in Mowed Lawn, Picked Raspberry and Squeezed Lemonade.


The hut was then stamped on Tim Holtz Idea-ology Mask Sheets and then the huts were covered with the masks so the sand, water and clouds could be inked. The sand is Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, the water Salty Ocean and the sky around the clouds is Tumbled Glass. Water was then flicked on the paper for a distressed look.


The boardwalk was created with Kraft paper and a TH Wood Grain Embossing Folder. The embossing was inked with Gathered Twigs and it was cut into strips to resemble wood planks. The two stamps are from the same Artistic Outpost set. The tag on the left is a Spellbinders Labels and Tags die an the center tag is a Spellbinders Grommet Tag die. The edges of the tags were inked with Walnut Distress Ink.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Artistic Outpost - August Referral Program
  2. DL.Art - Thankful Thursday - August Anything Goes
  3. Sunday Funday - August Linky Party
  4. Just B Creative Crazy - Just Because Linky Party
  5. Fun-Day Friday Challenge #12 - H20

  11. My sweetest friend, this is a spectacular easel card! Not surprisingly, you made one in a way I hadn't previously seen. :o) I LOVE the boardwalk for the base! It looks amazing, especially with the inking and plank-cutting. The beach huts are gorgeous in their various hues, with the dreamy water scene behind. You create a scene like no other. :o) Stunning work, my dear Lisa! I hope you have a sparkly happy Saturday. :o)

    Hugs and blessings!

  12. Great beach houses, Lisa. We don't have houses like that at our beaches here in South Texas. Hotels and Motels from one-star to four-star, with boardwalks to the beach, but not many houses. Still looks like fun! Have a great weekend, my friend.
