Wishing I was there...

Where? At the beach...with the warmth of the sun beating down on me. My toes in the sand and the sound of the waves washing up on the shore. I'm sick of cold Michigan temperatures, slushy snow and muddy roads! I want to go to the beach! OK...enough whining! Here's a card I made while wishing I was at the beach.

Of course I used the Beautiful Beach set...that was a no-brainer! I stamped the shell images in VersaMark and used my pastels to do the poppin' pastels technique. You can't tell in the scan but I stamped the images on Shimmery White card stock so they really have a nice look to them.

For the background I used the Cheesecloth background stamp inked in white craft ink on both the Sage and Kraft card stock. Then I went lightly over the Kraft background with my Speckled jumbo wheel to make it look more like sand. I sponged the edges of the sage card stock with Basic Brown. I love the shell border stamp and the sentiment stamps with this set. I think they made nice final touches to this card.

Wishing you a beautiful day!

I hear you about the sloppy weather, but your card "shore" isn't...ha Love the way you colored the shells.
