It also linked in with my seaside adventure I had with my daughter and Daisy on Tuesday. We met in Southsea and had a brilliant day by the sea. I will write a post about the day very soon, as we found an amazing cafe with cakes you would not believe. I saw gorgeous blue skies, saw the seagulls soaring in the sky and heard the waves rolling in.
Tim created an amazing bubble embossed sheet using plastic from packaging. Again I don't have many embossing folders but I do have a swirl one by Sizzix which reminded me of waves.
I don't have a seahorse die but I recently bought a great seahorse stamp from an American company called Red Lead. I stamped it onto grunge paper and also cut out some shells with a Marianne die.
I then added Rock candy distress crackle paint to the coloured pieces. At that point I left them overnight in my studio to see it do its magic.
Here is my fun mix
I then spend time deciding on my layout and over the next day put my tag together...here it is
and I finished it off with some twine
I would like to enter my tag into the following challenges;

Bye for now,
