At the beach

This is a complete change from 'seasonal' cards - the theme at present on Daring cardmakers is 'at the beach', chosen by Keryn in New Zealand, who, of course, had very different Christmas weather to us in the UK.

I've spent time this morning sorting out a box of offcuts - and I came across some background pieces that I'd made a while ago using the shaving foam technique - if you've not come across this before, you can see a tutorial here.

The 'Sand' section in the middle is an acetate, held in place by brads, over a 'sea' coloured background. The base card is an aqua stardream. Both the marbled background and the 'Sand' section have been mounted on to aqua mirror card, which, unfortunately, doesn't show up here. The photo had to be taken at an angle because of reflection on the acetate if taken face on.

The acetate overlay is for Rainbow Lady 95 - this is for Rainbow Lady 132: your choice of 2010.

This is also for:
