The Craft Barn Calendar Challenge - July

The month thief has been at it again and stolen July! I'm just in time with my July entry to the Craft Barn Calendar Challenge. This month we have to use turquoise and beach huts on our project.  Details can be found here.

For this month's tag I started by spritzing a piece of  watercolour card with water, sprinkled on a little turquoise Brusho, spritzed again and then spread the colour over the card with a brush. The sun was stamped onto a piece of tissue paper and painted with PaperArtsy Fresco on both the front and back (the colour wasn't intense enough by just painting on the back). After stamping the beach huts onto card they were coloured with Distress Inks. Then I finished by stamping the seagulls and words directly onto the tag and adding a piece of seam binding coloured with Distress Ink.

Perfect choice of stamps (I think I have the sun one but never used it) for the theme. The beach huts look great, very "real".
