St Luke's Charity Challenge - Oh I do like to be beside the seaside......

The latest challenge over at St Luke's Charity is "Oh I do like to be beside the seaside". I've recently been taking the mammoth task of sorting out all my unmounted stamps which were in poly-boxes but kept getting mixed up - so I thought I'd mount them all on laminating sheets and file in individual sections in binders. You know when you start a job and half way through wish you hadn't...............!!!! lol Anyway I came across this lovely A Little Bit Sketchy stamp set "Time Flies" by Sheena Douglass and it was perfect for this challenge.

I stamped the main image using Memento ink and coloured using Flex and Promarkers. I then cut out the image and mounted it using silicone glue on a piece of card which I had sponged with blue DI for the sky. The heart shaped clouds were also stamped and cut out and added using silicone. This has been matted and layered and placed on a top fold 6x6 card. The sentiment is from the same set cut using nesties labels and I've added a dotty pink ribbon and some gems.

Thanks for looking.
