Clever Dexter June Challenge - Beach Bum


This month we invite you to join in with

THEME: Beach Bum

PALETTE: Purple, Yellow, Green, Red, White (optional)

SPONSORED BY: Oddball Stamps

Please visit the Clever Dexter Challenge Blog to find out more...

Here is my first inspirational make for this challenge:

I saw this box in a junk shop the other day and couldn't resist it - this was sort of my inspiration when I added a page to my scrapbook...

The first layer is a paper that looks like a distressed journal page (from Dragonslair some years ago). I then added the Mermaid witch from CCC 76. Take a look here for a similar image. I also added the chest from the May Exclusive set. I coloured all these with Copics and cut them out.

Finally I added a scatter of wooden embellishments.

Hope you will come and join us!!

Hopefully I will be in time to add this to Leigh's Half-o-ween hop...

Once again Leigh is hosting a Halfway to Halloween Half-O-Ween Blog Hop - find more details here...

I will link this to the Something Wicked this way comes post.

Happy Crafting!
