Beach ATC

Hi and welcome. First, thank you to the ABAC Design Team for selecting me as a featured artist for Challenge 17: April Showers : water mobile
ATC's are something I've not done very often, but I've enjoyed doing this challenge, so will endeavour to do more of these little artworks. Meanwhile, here is my take for Challenge 18 at:

For the background I used foam, cut from a thin yoga mat and put it through an embossing folder to make my own stamp for printing. The same folder was used for the glimmer misted brown card stock strip. The photograph is of the headland at a nearby beach, Lennox Head and was taken on a beautiful, sunny, but very windy, spring day. Before mounting the photograph,  I used an old method of slitting and separating it, to give a different visual impact. Punched leaves and a bit of bling have completed the piece.
Thank you for visiting and for your lovely comments.
Cheers, Di
