April's More Mixed Media Challenge project

Spring is in the air!! Where's the time going? April already. For this month's More Mixed Media Challenge, the DT were tasked with using Yellow. It's not my favourite colour to work with, but I do adore seeing it in nature, so cheery!!.I had a quirky stamped image that I had in my stash and I decided to work on something a little different - and perhaps wishful thinking with wanting warmer weather and sitting on the beach.... so here it is - Life's a Beach:

I used a variety of scraps of card and paper (I have a big bag full so good time to use at least a small portion of it) in blues, greens, cream and yellow. I tore and layered up the various colours to depict sea or sand on top of some card I'd colour washed with blue paint. The stamped image with coloured using Promarkers and then fussy cut out and layered on top. The flip flops were hand cut out from a piece of patterned scrap paper and the tiny thongs cut and stuck on and a little crystal on each for some bling. I used a flower die cut for the sun, to finish off the quirky card, alongside a die cut birthday wording and some crystals dotted around.

I do hope that you join us for April's Yellow challenge at More Mixed Media Challenge Blog - we always look forward to seeing your work and of course, you have the opportunity to win some lovely papers, courtesy of Lozzy and be in our Top 3.

I am also entering this card on the following challenges:
