Calendar Challenge - July
The weather continues to sizzle and makes me think longingly of a dip in the sea and the feel of sand between my toes. A couple of weekends ago we took a trip along the south coast from Brighton to Worthing and the memory of the beach huts I saw along the way was still fresh in my mind when I read that this month's recipe for the Craft Barn calendar challenge is turquoise and beach huts.
The only beach hut stamp I possess is by Craft Individuals (I suspect there may be several people in the same situation this month) so there was no long decision making as to which stamp to use. All the stamps used come from the same CI set except for the sand castle which is a very old Rubbadubadoo stamp. I used Adirondack butterscotch for the sand and various shades of blue/green DIs for the sea in the hope that one or a combination of them would be as close to turquoise as my ink supply could get. The seagulls and the beach hut windows were given a lick of wink of stella for a little sheen. So that's it for another month - I like to get my calendar done early but inspiration doesn't always strike.
