Just Beachy

Hi! I hope you are having a good day. I have made several projects with a beach theme lately. I must have the beach on my brain! I went to the beach in June and I guess I need some more time at the seashore. I made a beach themed tag this time using 2 techniques that Tim Holtz showed on his blog.

I stamped several seashells and fish on the background with Faded Jeans Distress ink. The die is Cattails from Spellbinders. The die cut from tag board is a Cheery Lynn die. I added centers to the tag board using the same die and cut from shimmer sheets, cream handmade paper and brown mulberry paper. At the bottom I added Mudd Puddles mini shells  and Champagne glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a blessed day!
