Summer Seashells


Some days when the mercury hits a 100, you just wish for a cool ocean breeze! This card is as close as I can get to that for now.  All week the Stampendous Design Team will be sharing beach themed projects so you can at least dream of being cool by the ocean.

Here is how I made my card.
1.  Stamp seashells on white paper with Onyx Black ink, sprinkle with black embossing powder and heat.
2.  Color with watercolor pencils and cut out using the Seashells Die Cut Set and set aside.
3.  Watercolor background on a watercolor panel. When dry layer onto Ocean Side colored paper and glue to a Spearmint colored card.
4.  Glue mesh and seashells to the bottom of the card.
5.  Stamp sentiment in upper right corner with Onyx Black ink.
6.  Randomly add Silver Dot Sprarkler stickers.

I have some wire mesh that I got on sale at Joann's.
It will work great for a card like this.
Love the shells.
