A Day At The Beach!

It is "Tag Time" at Fashionable Stamping Challenges as chosen by the lovely Claire!  The rest of the DT has some fabulous inspiration for you, so stop on by the blog and join in for some stamping fun on tags! There is a $20 random draw prize from Flonzcraft, our generous sponsor and chance to be in the Top Three!
For my tag, I am using the new Boardwalk release from Artistic Outpost, which this and all other stamps sets are on sale through June 8th at 15% off. My background was inked with Distress Inks, I placed a piece of fabric over the tag and with a dampened paper towel, pressed down on the tag to lift off color and then stamped the beach huts.
Used Tim's Pocket Watch die for a frame, which was cut from glassine adhered to grunge board. The gentleman swimmer was stamped on manila card stock using Archival Coffee, heat set and masked. The background was inked, spritz and flicked, and then the beach hut stamped. The emblem was colored with markers and die cut to size. The rusty key is from Brenda!
Now the bathing beauties also wanted to join in the beach fun. The Old Jalopy was alcohol inked on foil adhered to grunge board and the rusted treatment is from the copper fixative. Shading done with Archival Black. Now they wanted to pretty up the beach scene with a little bouquet of flowers, which Vada had sent to me!
The ladies were stamped, colored with markers and cut to fit for the windows. I added some seashells along the way and of course they gathered up some in a bottle to bring home.
Hope you enjoyed today's beachy blog post and I do thank you for stopping by and hope you have a most wonderful Summer!

Stamps: Artistic Outpost; Boardwalk
Inks: Distress; Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Stormy Sky, Rusty Hinge, Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo, Archival Coffee, Black

Hi Terry,
I have to say I love the girls in the vintage rusty car! Such a creative take on this stamp set. The shells in the bottle are fun.
Thanks for the best wishes on our power. We finally got it back. I am very thankful for electricty after having to do without. We had some really bad storms this past week and even a few tornadoes came through. You are right, it is not normal weather for NY. But weather all over lately seems to be unpredictable. Happy weekend.
