Hi peeps! Happy August! Woohoo...vacation is only a few weeks away! It's time for another Inspired By challenge, and Laurel has another beachy theme for us! First, a disclaimer about the sequins on my card...they are NOT purple and green, as they look in the photograph! Gee whizzies, I couldn't get them to photograph correctly for anything, so you'll just have to take my word for it! And here we go:
And here is her pretty inspiration:
I wanted to use current SU products for my card, as I am sending this to a new recruit! I stamped some images from Seaside Notions on Whisper White and Very Vanilla cardstocks in Gray Granite inks, then loosely colored them in with an aquapainter and fussy-cut them out. I masked off the top and bottom parts of the sentiment from Rooted in Nature, and stamped it in Pool Party and strung it on some Linen Thread. I mounted it on a Thick Very Vanilla card base that was embossed with the Subtle Embossing folder:
My sketch is from Hand-Stamped Sentiments, and I used some designer paper for my elements, adding the little "wave" diecut from Arts and Crafts:
As I said, I added some sequins, some Metallic Pearls, and I did stamp a few little speckles to imitate "sand"!! On the inside, I added a fun sentiment from Here's a Card, along with another seashell:
Beautiful colors and a beautiful image! I wish that Jar of Love was still current, it would have been fun to use that one....maybe someone will! Can't wait to see what you come up with...share it with us at Inspired By! Thanks for popping in today!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
