Dream Valley Challenges: Sports

Hey everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with my DT card for Dream Valley Challenges where our theme is 'Sports'. Well I chose sailing as this is my favourite stamp of the moment! I stamped onto watercolour paper and die cut round the image. I then colour washed it with Aquamarkers and I was really pleased with how it came out :-) I used Tim Holtz paper with some jute ribbon. I then added buttons as my embellishments and a little 'Thinking of you' dome greeting :-)

So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently.
