Anyway I used one of Sam Poole's amazing stamps... the lighthouse and the sentiment .... I also used an Andy Skinner stamp for the birds in flight. Distress inks were used and then a brush with a touch of water.
I wanted some texture hence the hessian, the bottle was a bargain buy in a set of six from 'the works' for 99p!! For the driftwood and bleached effect seaweed I cheated and used some of a pot pourri set from Asda. Nothing is safe when it comes to crafting lol.
The next make was a quickie using a Papermania kit from Do-Crafts which I got via Create and Craft at a ridiculous price... It was just a matter of deciding on a lay out and adding a sentiment stamp in a colour to match the papers. Of course I just had to e-mail in a piccie of the card to one of the Do-Craft shows on Create and Craft.
