Week 11 - Craft Barn Alpha Challenge

Getting my entry in again by the seat of my pants! It's been yet another busy couple of weeks but trips to London were interspersed with a trip to the Craft Barn Extravaganza weekend. I meet up with my lovely forum friends from Cardmaking Paradise who not only made the journey from various parts of England but come from as far a field as New Zealand, Germany and the Isle of Man. Excellent company, fabulous demonstrators and sunny weather to top it off - it doesn't get much better than that!

Back to this week's challenge which is  the letter F but it has to be a word found in the dictionary between FE and FR so an excellent opportunity to use for the first time this fish stamp that I bought a couple of years ago in a sale for a pound. It's a brand new wood mounted stamp by Chapel Road - what a bargain!

My atc just has a simple background of Distress Inks splashed with water and I added some micro beads to represent sand.
