Fun In the Sun!

Greetings! It's time once again for a new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu.  The Pink Team is up this week and our theme is "Anything Goes!

I decided to work with a number of stencils and clip art images from Red Lead.  I am really loving working with stencils.  Ever wonder how they resurfaced again after all these years?  (I am truly beginning to wonder if they will take a chunk out of rubber stamps in the market place.)

The sentiments were inked with Salty Ocean and Mowed Lawn Distress Ink.  I love the retro look of the clip art.  I came across the little fish brads at my local craft store this week and thought they were just perfect to embellish my card.  A bit of seam binding, a snippet of cheese cloth, a clam shell metal charm and some burlap string complete my card.  

I hope you have a few minutes to see what the rest of the Pink Team have dreamed up to inspire you to submit a project of your own.  Thanks for stopping by.  Hugs, Yvonne

The font used for your sentiment does work well with the retro image. I think those cute little fish brads were a great buy - they are such cute elements on this card - and I like how you've used different textures. So beautiful!
