My Beach Cottage peek no.2


Welcome to day 2 of the sneak peeks for My Beach Cottage by PCD! This month Courtney is releasing the stamps on the 5th, so you have one less day to wait! Woo hoo!
I kept this one simple and to the point, using sand paper for the bottom and embossing the anchor image in several coats of black e.p. before cutting it out.

I love that a really strong card can be made with few things...don't you? I tied a piece of black cord around the top of the anchor and dragged my Copic across the sandpaper to give the look of real dragging! Two simple star fish finish the card with a lazy, relaxed font saying "Welcome."

Be sure to stop by Courtney's blog and see what else she has up her sleeve and don't forget about Paulina and Alice too! Remember if you leave a comment on any of the release week posts on Courtney's blog, you will be entered to win the My Beach Cottage set!

Thanks for stopping by today friends, hope you have a wonderful weekend!
OH and I wanted to give a shout out to my multi-talented friend Jessica who posted an incredible tutorial on her blog yesterday. She shows us how to carve our own stamps and it is so much easier than I originally thought. She had really great pictures and even some carving tips too. Go check it out for a chance to win some blog candy from her...some of her hand carved stamps! Woo hoo!
