Beach Scenes

I am always so amazed at the fun pictures that Shirley finds for the MFPSpeedyTV Inspiration Challenge. This week she found some really pretty beach sunsets with little houses and huts that she calls Surf City:


This challenge is super fun for me! The pictures always take me in some interesting directions. I purchased some Mudpuddles Malibu Beach sand and Sea Glass and I put them on tag I stamped with MFP's Holiday Tag set. I then sponged on some Time Holtz distress inks to mimic the beach skies in picture one and three (I sponged my base paper as well). Then I stamped a sentiment from the new Medallion set (sneak peak) and some grass I made with the leaf from Nature's Brushstrokes.


Aren't you ready for beach weather? I found the coolest quote yesterday from Ginger's House. It says, "My swimsuit told me to go to the gym, but my sweatpants were like..., "Nah girl, you are good."" How funny is that!

Let these pictures inspire you and come join us in the MFPSpeedyTV Challenge - we would love to see how these pictures inspire you.

Hugz!

  1. Nancy, this tag card look REALLY good to me right now seeing as how we are in the mist of a week of snow storms. We've had two already and are heading for the possibility of another one this weekend. Your colors are perfectly. I can picture myself laying on a beach right now. I'm not sure which I like better, your card or the quote you have in this post. That is one of the better quote I've ever heard. Thanks for making me laugh this early in the morning. Enjoy your day.

  2. Love this! Those smaller tags are a great size and I love how you mimicked the sky and added Mudd Puddles for the water/beach.

    Your tag is super with the sand and sea glass. You really did some wonderful sponging.

  4. I'm not just ready to put the snow shovel away, I'm ready to break it in half and use the handle for fire wood. The blue sky mimic also looks like sea water and foam breaking one the shore. Very nicely done.

  5. This is brilliant Nancy, your tag is beautiful with the gorgeous glass beads, you always manage to create something fabulous from the inspiration pictures.
    I'm certainly ready for some beach weather, but I definitely need to go to the gym before I head for the beach!
