Some Kat Scrappiness Slimline Inspiration

  I made this inspiration card for the Die Cut Divas whose sponsor for November is Kat Scrappiness.  You only have until 9:00 p.m. Pacific time to enter the challenge

Kat Scrappiness is offering a prize of a 
Kat Scrappiness Gift Pack valued at least $25.

These little houses or sheds remind me of 1800s bathing sheds (also called bathing machines as some of them were on wheels).  I thought anything by the beach had to be brightly colored, so I took reds, oranges, yellows, greens and blues to color my beach houses.  There is NO stamping on this card anywhere, just die-cuts.  The top row of houses and trees is a WINTER die and when I look at the row here, I can only imagine a row of summer houses because of those bright colors and the beach scene.

I cut houses from a second sheet of the die cut on copic paper to color and fit between two Wave dies, one colored to look like sand dunes and the other in blue greens for the sea.  I dotted the landscape with enamel dots to make believe they were beach balls ready for children to come out and play.  I left the word "Paper" off of the sentiment die and it really works well in this setting.  I had such fun creating this scene to be able to use it as other than as a Winter or Christmas landscape.
