At the beach


Time for a new challenge at Crafty Ribbons and this time our theme is Summer, with ribbon of course. I chose to make a plaque with a beach theme. The plaque was painted blue and I then added some PVA glue and cream paint and crackle accents. I have several pieces of this net stuff in my stash, not sure what the proper name is for it. I used some dies, shell, pearls and Kaisercraft shells and sentiment from packs I bought in America. The beach hut ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons of course.

Challenges
