Hanging at the beach...

Hello everyone, it's Alison here, back to share this papier mache hanging board inspired by the fabulous Boardwalk plate.
I've used PaperArtsy Crackle Glaze with Fresco paints to create the weathered background, and stamped the Beauties in Jet Black Archival.  I masked them and used Coffee to stamp the beach hut "behind" them.
The sentiment at the top is borrowed from the Typography set, and embossed for extra gloss and dimension.
I used Antique Linen Distress embossing powder for my sandy beach - with some sticking to the legs of my bathing beauties... happy accidents! - and added some fishing net for extra beachy texture.
The beach continues onto the sides of the board, and the little Bathing Beauties text stamp puts in an appearance from all angles.
I added a little clothes peg that had the same crackle treatment as the finishing touch, and there you have it.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Do come along and share your Artistic Outpost projects in this month's Referral Program to be in with a chance at the prize draw.  See you again soon.
