Pirates (and Angels) of the Caribbean .......

I’m playing along again this month with
Tim's Summery July inspiration...
Tim has taken us on a trip to the beach with his lovely tag full of yummy texture & techniques 
I had soooo much fun with this challenge....
I had to improvise a little as I didn't have the same dies, bubbles texture fades and some of the other ingredients...  but that shouldn't stop you...just gives you the excuse to experiment!! ;)
Anyway.... this is my version, inspired by Tim's July tag.....
....all ready to be put together
I've used the swirls texture fades with my shrink plastic, to place over my distressed tag.
...then die-cut some seaweed using the foliage from the tattered pinecone die.
 I've given my chipboard elements the distress crackle treatment, I didn't have the distress crackle paint, so have used crackle glossy accents instead....and created my own sand-dollar .
and I couldn't resist adding the fab photo ( Idea-ology 'Found relatives' cards)- distressed at the edges
and this is the end result.....

Pirates (and Angels) of the Caribbean .......

complete with sand!
Looking forward to seeing what Tim inspires us with his August tag  now...
So until next time.....
Thanks for Peeking!
