Beate's Weekend Challenge--More Beachy Stuff


Well, I guess I am on a beach kick! Of all the stamps I have in my stash, I just keep going for beach-themed images! Today's card is for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I used four patterns of DP from Basic Grey's Two Scoops--two patterned, two plain. I then stamped the little swirl from Sweet Shapes on the plain in Soft Sky and Blue Bayou, then added some Jelly Roll pen to make it a little shimmery. The image is from Lizzie Anne's Shore Thoughts. It is stamped in Not Quite Navy craft ink on Very Vanilla and embossed with clear EP. I then used my aquapainters, ink and alcohol to color in the image. I also outlined the image very lightly with Blush Blossom, and if you click on the photo, you can see where I stamped the little dot pattern at the base of the shell also. It is mounted on a piece of Blush Blossom and I tied the whole thing together with Papertrey's beautiful Aqua Mist satin ribbon. Since the DP is rather busy & swirly, I left the rest of the card plain. The whole shebang is mounted on a card of Sage Shadow. This is a quick post today as it has been a busy day and I still have more to do! Might not even get to stamp today at all :( I made this card last night before I went to bed! TFL!
