For this challenge we were each assigned an image for the September Mega Collaboration and I have this fabulous image from Hope Jacare Doodles called Sandcastle and I can honestly say I really enjoyed working with this one.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers adding a smiley sunshine and a floating cloud. I used sever shades of blue for the sea and added texture to the sandcastle and the sand with a blending pen.

I wanted to make a stepper card to really show off the image so used a scrap sheet of A4 paper to plan out where to do my cuts before I used a piece of Kraft card for the base. I made a few booboos so I’m really glad I planned it out first. It took a while but was worth it in the end J
The die cut beach ball, sentiment and waves have been amassed from DCWV and Let’s Make Cards kits. On the bottom section I have added some small shells, some of which I have collected on the beach, some are specifically for crafting. I have also added some sea themed beads.
