Beside the Seaside...

I couldn't resist using the new seaside stamps (CI-272) from Crafty Individuals to make a beach hut. It uses one of their little boxes to which I've added a front out of mountboard.Here's the front:

I made the seahorse by stamping into some Cosmic Shimmer UTEE crystals (Lapis Black) with some gold powder rubbed over the top.
This is the inside of the front:

Here's the box part:
The seagulls hold the beaded thread/wire in place.

And here's the whole inside:

I've used CI papers, Adirondack Paint Dabbers, corresponding Adirondack inkpads.

Thanks for looking!
