My Time to Craft DT Challenge #307 Inspired by the Beatles

Good morning! It's a grey, overcast Saturday today, and the England Cricketers are not doing very well in their Test Match in Dubai against Pakistan. So I'll be in my craft room if you want me!!

We have a new Challenge at My Time to Craft and it's a really good one: Inspired by the Beatles! I went with 'Yellow Submarine' and a Shaker card.

I have this fun stamp set by Reverse Confetti called Here We Go which has the cutest car, aeroplane and submarine!

I sponged the inside of the shaker window with Broken China and peacock Feathers. The submarine is stuck onto the front of the acetate - to colour it I used Mama Elephant pigment inks, first covering the whole of the stamp in yellow, then going round the edge with orange. The front of the card has been stamped in an ombre pattern with a stamp from the Best Fishes set by Simon Says Stamp, and I used two of the fish from the same set, coloured and cut out and mounted on foam.

Even my hubby likes this one!!

Have a look at my teamies' creations to be inspired, get out your flares and kaftan, put an LP on the gramophone and craft like it's 1969!

Thanks for looking, and have a good weekend!

love Mags B x

Super card Mags, seems to be the most popular song. I love cricket but it looks like England are going to be beaten in the test match.
