Hi everyone! This is my July challenge design for the Dies R Us “Day at the Beach” challenge! My inspiration came from Graphic 45 “By the Sea” paper and from Cheery Lynn dies.
The Cheery Lynn Chicken Wire die, which reminded me of a fishing net, was cut to fit the background. The detail in the Sea Horse die was brought out by sponging a little Tea Dye Distress ink over the indentations.
The sentiment, from Waltzingmouse, was stamped with Tuxedo Black. I added the hemp twine with a nautical knot and the Cheery Lynn Starfish and Sand Dollar dies were used as embellishments.
