Go Tag Thursday - Beach Huts

I'm very pleased to be hosting this weeks challenge at Go Tag Thursday and the theme I have chosen is Beach Huts.
The challenge is fairly new and is run by Sandie, it would be lovely if you visited and entered the challenge.

I made two samples.


I used grey board as the base for this tag. I painted the tag with a dark turquoise acrylic paint and when it was dry I painted Weathered Wood crackle medium in lines hoping it would look like planks of wood, I painted white paint over the tag and waited for the crackles. I used a black pencil to try and make the planks of wood look like planks of wood. The door was painted with watered down paint. I coloured some gauze with distress ink and glued it to the bottom of the tag and added some shells and an anchor charm, I cut the oars out of a magazine and the Life's A Beach was made using a Crafty Individuals stamp.

I coloured this tag with distress ink and dry brushed some white acrylic over it, I used a Crafty Individuals beach hut stamp on the background and added some tissue tape. The main image was stamped with a Michael Powell stamp and coloured with pencils. I coloured some gauze with distress ink and glued it to the bottom of the tag together with some white ric rac ribbon. The boat was stamped with a Crafty Secrets stamp, cut out and glued to the tag. The quote is a Hobby Art stamp.

Thank you for looking - have a lovely day and I hope you can take part in the challenge.
