Be Inspired Skinny



The challenge on Skinny Saturday is called Be Inspired, and we were asked to make a skinny page with a matching atc, on any theme. This reminded me of the very first fat book swap I joined a couple of years ago, where we had to make matching atcs too!

I used Pine Needles and Broken China Distress Inks for my background, which I splattered with water and spritzed with a green Glimmer Mist. I then stamped some Paper Artsy impressions around generally, clear embossing the main image on both the atc and the skinny and using Peeled Paint Distress Ink for the starfish and words. I finished it off with a couple of shell charms in the corner and a clip and fibres to hold them together!!
