This is an ATC (Artist Trading Card) for my August challenge with MissHelenStamps over on Split Coast (a little late huh?!) where Helen's challenge was to make an ATC with a beach theme. Somehow August came and went and I never made this!!It is also for the weekly Double Dare Challenge I do with some SCS friends - Michelle's (SF9erfan) challenge was to use an unloved item - something you haven't used for a long time - in this case it is my Close to My Heart stamp set - On the Beach - which I love but have only used once or twice since I got it years ago!
This is 2.5 x 3.5 size - the beach part is a stamp - stamped several times across the card - the sky part I sponged using my home made cloud template and Soft Sky ink. I stamped and cut out the sun and sandcastle - and fashioned the flag out of a red scrap and a toothpick!
I also used my word punch - another thing I've had for a long time and haven't used much. I love how the sentiment fit right inside it!
