Creative Inspirations challenge 9....

This weeks challenge over on Creative Inspirations is "Favourite stamped image" pop on over and check it out for a chance to win some prima flowers.
My ingredients...
Joanna Sheen stamp{one of the on the beach stamps}
Mixture of My Minds Eye papers
Brown ink pad to make the papers aged
Cosmic shimmer
Sewing machine
I dithered over this one as i don`t do a lot of stamping and panicking" eeek" what am i gonna do!!!
I don`t have a lot of stamps but splashed out a year or two ago and bought "on the beach set" and i do love them,i don`t colour them in as i like the natural look but i did use a little cosmic shimmer for the water.
I used the brown ink pad for the image and all around the papers to make them look older,i know its not everyones thing but i like the aged look,lol and wanted a soft effect on the papers.
Hauled out the sewing machine for some stitching and all done.
Note to self to do more stamping!!!!!
Thanks for looking
hugs n stuff
