Best of British

Hi folks!

I just knew I had to make a sandcastle shaped card using sandpaper when I saw these delightful images. I took inspiration for the shape from the tiny sandcastle stamp which was part of the aptly named 'Sandcastle' stamp set by Faye Whittaker.

I managed to use all the images from the set mounting them on circles and scalloped circles die cut using Nestabilities.
I painted the images using Lyra aquacolour crayons and made the bunting with my Cricut Machine. I enjoyed using sandpaper for the background, it added a fabulous texture to the card.

Ciao for now!

What a great idea, wish I could think of things like that. The card looks great and the texture must feel great too. You could even use it for filing your nails LOL
