Tim Holtz Surf Shack with Shari Carroll

Happy Friday everyone!! It’s Shari here with a fun project. I’ve worked with the Tim Holtz Surf Shack and Village Dwelling dies to create the cutest little beach house!!!! It’s so gnarly!!

I started out with the Nostalgic Kraft-Core cardstock and cut out several of the elements in different colors. I tried to stick with colors that would look retro.  I also used the Texture Surfaces to cut out the roof pieces. Once I painted them with Brushed Pewter Distress paint it really looks like corrugated steal!

I used a little bit of Fired Brick and Antique Linen Distress ink to color the life preserver, and some Distress paints to give the house a weathered look.

I decided it would be cute to put “Hang 10” on my shack, so I used the Tim Holtz Alphanumeric Thinlits Dies in fun colors and strung the “Hang” up by attaching string to the porch posts. I placed the “10” to the front of the porch.
