or you can use the 'anything goes' option as long as the main focus of your project is stamping.
I took my inspiration from the beach scene and the colours, using a variety of stamps, some of which were magazine freebies, I stamped the deckchair onto white cardstock, masked it and stamped again to create a matching pair, then stamped the beach umbrella, then cut the card into an L shape to fit the front my card base. Coloured the stamps and background beach scene with markers. The hat, book and sunglasses also coloured with makers and fussy cut. the sentiment is stamped and embossed with white EP.

Hello Everyone, I'm here today with my DT card for our August Challenge at
This month we have a lovely summer mood board to inspire you, or you can always use the 'Anything Goes' option if you prefer. Please remember that stamping must be the main element of your project .
I took my inspiration from the colours, the dog in a hat and the little green bird. I blended some Distress inks onto a panel of cardstock, Stamped the dog- a Marvin lookalike with some of his habits- then the birdie and the sentiment, used my Copics to colour. It looked a bit bare so I added the stencilled leaves and a doodled border.
Head on over to the challenge blog where you will find plenty of fabulous inspiration from the rest of the DT, hope you can find the time to join in this month- as always there's a lovely prize on offer for the lucky winners.Our prizes this month are from Craft Stash, first a collection of Santoto Gorjuss girls stamps/die/stickers and second a Woodware floral stamp.

A new challenge starts today at Sweet Stampin' with a fun theme of 'Inspired by a book/film /song' - I couldn't resist playing along with Team Wendy as I recently purchased these quirky stamps, (Paper Artsy). Even the sentiment fits the theme :) In case anyone hasn't guessed , the song is 'I'm in the mood for Dancing' -the Nolan Sisters. It's stuck in my head now....
