Sun, sea and sand

The Design Team at Tando Creative is going seasonal this week and being inspired by "sun, sea and sand".

I've made a simple ATC using one of the white board shapes as a base. I love the fact they're really sturdy so they're easy to handle and you don't need to stick anything on the back of your work to make it feel stable.

Small stamps are perfect to create "holiday snapshots" in the film strip cells and I've added a paperclay starfish that has been in my stash for years - I made it in a polymer clay mould that was created from a real starfish that was in a bowl of decorative shells I picked up in a charity shop.

A wonderful ATC, Joanne. I like the juxtaposition between the heavy black of the film frame and the dreamy blues of the sky and sea.

Another gorgeous piece of work, Joanne. I wonder who wrote the sentiment because it is just right right for your ATC.

Makes me wish I were seaside, Joanne! Gorgeous. I love the relaxing colors and the filmstrip look.

One of these days, I am going to get "into" polymer clay - you are always an inspiration.
