Go 3d!

The theme over on Gingersnap Creations this week is "Go 3d". For my entry to the challenge, I decided to make this trio of beach huts (goodness knows, we haven't had much of a summer here in the UK, so anything summery by way of home decor items can only help to brighten things up!). I wanted to acheive that washed-out , sun-bleached feel, so I used Weathered Wood, Antique Linen and Milled Lavender Distress ink pads. The stamps were from Tim Holtz's Tiny Textures and Floral Tattoo sets.

The huts were cut from white cardstock on the Cricut, and then stamped and assembled. Not quite my normal style here, I was trying to go a little outside of my comfort zone and aimed for something fresh and spare in style. Thanks for taking a look, why not check out the other entries on the Gingersnap Creations blog?
