Craft Stamper Take a Technique Texture

I have made this seaside 3d card/book for my sisters birthday this July.

I originally used a template to make the book, but.... well it sort of got a bit complicated and I ended up doing my own thing. Remarkably it still looks like a book!

I used Phyliss Harris's  gorgeous little girl and dog stamp to set my seaside theme. I created the background with dye inks, and then stamped boats and birds on separate card and cut them out. I dangled one seagull on some invisible thread. 

I made a white cliff with grunge paste and put a light house on top to keep the boats safe!

I used decoart texture sand paste to make the sand, it was an off white colour so I added some butterscotch ink to make it look more sandy.

Some white net made some swishy sea waves or sea horses as I always call them.

I made a beach scene to go on the front cover, and a background scene for the inside cover with my birthday message.

Thanks for looking, and happy summer time to everyone.
