Seaside Fun!!

A very Happy Monday to everyone and thank you so much for visiting the Southern Ridge Trading Company blog where we will be showing you the way we have used the marvelous chipboard and wood products from the company which you can order HERE. We would also love to see your creation at our Facebook page HERE.

I'm Jacque and I would like to show you my first chipboard creation---a card I made using the lovely lighthouse TRA-329 (which will be on the web site very soon) and the fence from GAR-185. I am new to chipboard so this was just so much fun and exciting and I'm sure you will enjoy using it also. It certainly adds a new dimension to anything you might make!

The base and all double matting is Bazzill and the DP is from the Bildmalarna An Ocean and Strawberries  collection. The image is also from Bildmalarna and was colored with Copics and Promarkers. The lighthouse was painted with acrylics, adding a bit of shading and using gold glitter paint for the windows and a pearl for the top of the cupola. Along the bottom I used a piece of the fence from the GAR-185 set and some Sand FlowerSoft, adding a few sea related buttons. That little fence reminds me of the driftwood fences we see along the Eastern Seaboard. The front was finished with satin ribbon tied into a double flat bow, some hemp twine, and a ship's wheel charm. Finally I added some burlap corners to the image panel and some pearls to the corners.

On the jotting panel on the inside I used the rest of the little fence with more sand and buttons and a little gold metal corner.

I hope you like my little creation and will decide to join in with us on a chipboard adventure! Until the next time, I send big hugs!!
