PP525 Seashell Thanks for Joanne's Sketch

Happy Sunday, all!  It's time for a new Paper Players challenge, and the fabulous Joanne has a terrific sketch for us this week:

 


I had a lot of ideas swirling around in my head for this sketch, it's so versatile, and in the end I opted to use some of the new Sand & Sea DSP, along with some diecuts from Smooth Sailing!  Here we go:



Once I got the basic idea in my head, this went together pretty quickly!  I diecut a piece of this pretty pink patterned paper with a Stitched Rectangle die, then filled in the remaining white area with several of the "seaweedy" diecuts from Smooth Sailing.  I adhered them randomly around the edges, then "painted" them with some water and a little bit of Frost White Shimmer paint.  It gives the seaweeds a beautiful shimmery effect!


For the focal point, I stamped a shell from Seaside Notions in white craft ink on Blushing Bride cardstock, heat embossed it with white embossing powder, then tinted some of the same Frost White Shimmer paint with a tiny bit of Rococo Rose ink and painted the inside of the shell, then fussy-cut it out:


It's really pretty IRL!  The final step was to add a sentiment banner stamped in Rococo Rose with a sentiment from Lots of Heart!  I admit I had a little trouble with the pink color in this DSP; SU says the colors of the papers are Blushing Bride, Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mango, none of which really match this paper very well.....I think it's a cross between Blushing Bride and Rococo Rose.  I would be interested in knowing what other demonstrators think!

Thank you so much for popping in today!  I hope you'll play along with Joanne's sketch...it's a great one and the design team has made some amazing samples!  Please hop over to the Paper Players to see what they made, and to share yours with us as well!

Your shimmering seaweed is fabulous! Whatever color combo is in the paper, it's a lovely shade of pink. Wonderful card!

LeAnne, I love the soft texture of your card. The tone on tone die cuts add beautiful texture and bring your design together perfectly. This is beautiful.
