PYC Challenge #1 - Down By the Sea Theme

PYC Challenge #1 - Down By the Sea Theme

Hello My Crafty friends


The first Parade Your Crafts Challenge starts 


 We are all so very excited to get started.
So lets do this!!!

The theme is: Down by the sea

Here's what I created:

I used quite a few layers on my card.
First I layered two different pattern papers to get the ocean feel and then a torn solid and again another pattern.  Echo Park has really cute paper and the collection "Sunshine" was perfect for the theme.
I then took a couple stamps from Unity to stamp my 
chick, umbrella and title "Good Times".
I colored them with my spectrum noir markers. 
I went back to my pattern paper and cut out the cute little surf boards which added that extra touch.

And talking about extra touch...who doesnt like glitter and added texture.  Well I know I do and this card wouldnt have been complete without some sort of sand.  So I added a little textured glitter. I was excited to play and create with Therm-o-web super tape.  It is awesome for adding glitter to you projects.
If you havent tried it yet, you should.  And it is so easy to use.  Hey guess what?  
Here is a close up look to my card:

I hope I have inspired you today.
