Summer at the beach with FSC

We have been enjoying a little hot weather the last few days and at FSC this month we are bringing you some summer inspiration with our latest theme - Seaside/Beach. I'm sharing a card I made for my dad for fathers day back in June. 
I've used a Kanban stamp set creating background papers which I've layered as a base for the main image which is stamped on water colour card and coloured with Brushos. A bit of cheesecloth for netting and some twine add finishing touches. 
As always my fellow FSC teamies have created some beautiful works of art so please head over and check them out. I hope you feel inspired to join our challenge - Don't forget we are a stamping challenge and stamping needs to be the focal point on your project.  NO Digi stamps please. Our sponsor is Flonzcraft and the winner chosen at random will receive a voucher for $20 - we also give special mention to our top 3. 

I'm sharing my summer card at these challenges too - 

Crafty Boots - Life's a beach/summer Holidays
Inkspirational - photo inspiration
The Artistic Stamper - Anything Goes
Allsorts - inspired by summer 

I look forward to seeing your summery creations....Happy Crafting Esther xx
