One of my favorite things to do in the summer is to go to the ocean and walk along the beach, picking up shells. It is so relaxing with the sound of the waves in the background, a breeze coming off of the water, and the sand between your toes. I tried to put all of this in today’s card.
The main image is a combination of the Nature's Gift image and the Sand in YourShoes image. The Sand in Your Shoes image was stamped twice and cut out with Spellbinder Oval dies. These were popped up on top of each other and layered on top of the Nature’s Gift image.
The background is created using the Faux Patina technique. Then cream decorative paper is torn, sponged with antique linen ink, and layered along the left side and the bottom. Sea Oats were stamped and embossed with Cappuccino EP on the left side and Sand along the bottom strips with Hit theBeach EP. Then I added Mudd Puddles Beach Pieces and shells cut out from the Nature’s Gift image. The Mudd Puddles are a new product at SparkleN Sprinkle and I love what they added to my card. The Beach Pieces are pieces of shell in a quick drying adhesive and you just spread them with a knife. As a final touch I added a sea horse charm, colored with alcohol markers and embossed several times with Silver Pearl EP, hung from blue fiber.
