How about a little summer? The weather has definitely gotten very cool the last couple of days. I was happy to ink up a pile of seashells and color them.
I used a touch of embossing powder to make my image pop because this was stamped over a painted background. I started with neutral colors in the background which I thought would be perfect for the shells. After I stamped I embossed with brown embossing powder. I then colored the images with STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell watercolor pencils. I used the Darkroom Door new Shells Background Stamp and the words are from the DarkRoom Door Seaside Wordstrips. I had fun picking out which words to use on the card.
My final touch was the mixed twine with a poinsettia. Yep... I cut off a few of the poinsettia petals to try to make a starfish. :) There is a little bit of sand glued around the edges but difficult to see in the photo.
Well I hope I warmed up your day a bit and took you on a little sea-side break.
