Get Funky Challenge - At the Seaside!

Here is my entry for the Get Funky Challenge running over the Funky Hand blog. The theme is 'At the Seaside' and the only requirement is that at least one of the Funky Hand products is used as part of the design. If you don't have any Funky Hand papers there is a Freebie to use as part of your entry. Not bad!

I made the card using light brown cardstock base and creating a shoreline and background for surfboards using backing paper from the 'Funky One' cd, Bright Blue paper selection. The torn edge of the blue paper is supposed to represent the tide :-)

The surfboards were stamped onto paper from the Orange paper selection from the same cd. The surfboards were then cut out and placed with dimensional adhesive pads to add depth. The 'Sun' was stamped directly onto the blue 'Sky' and the centre is a circle punched out from some orange cardstock. Some flip-flops and a spade were added for detail. All the stamps, including the sentiments are from Stephanie Barnard's Summer4Fun stamp set.

I hope you like today's post and don't forget to leave a comment. I look forward to reading them.

    Making the tide is just so brilliant and the surfboard stamped on the Funky Hand DP's is a great idea to make them look even more authentic! I just feel like jumping in the surf you made too.
