MR CARROT GOES ON VACATION with HAPPY DAZE

I am lucky enough to be the Guest Designer for the month of August for Happy Daze.
The challenge is ''I do Like to be beside the Seaside''........great fun.

So here we have ''Mr Carrot goes on Vacation'', but he doesn't like to go alone so he asked Mr Octopus to go with him, well he would wouldn't he...........lol


This is how I created the Hanging. First I alcohol inked a sheet of photocard, then while that was drying I did the same with the bottletop. Then I used Stampotique stamps for the images, coloured and then cut them out.
Other products used: Acrylic paints, Glossy Accents, Sepia Accents, The Ultimate Glu, Micra Beads (which are like Bedazzles) Pink Shells and
Corrugated and Black Card.
I hope you like it and pop over to the Happy Daze Challenge Blog (see my sidebar) and join in. You can also enter this challenge on their Facebook page. All the stamps used and Ranger Products are obtainable from the Happy Daze online shop.

Can't wait to see what you create for the challenge and did I mention there is a Whopping 15 Pound Voucher for the lucky winner..........  full details on the the Happy Daze Blog (see my sidebar)

Have a Happy Week and take care, Hugs Annette x
