Seashell Summer 04290

Well, this is one of those cards that the idea was different than the result. It also is prettier sparkly and not anywhere near as dark as it is the pics. And somewhere along the line, the paper piecing part totally got lost. Maybe we can call the stamping and fussy cutting of all those shells as paper piecing 🙂 I have some packages of coated glitter sticker card stock and this particular sheet was silver. I added the blues & greens with Copics then stamped the shells and palm tree with Ancient Page on top. I had to color then stamp because the ink and Copics don’t work together if I do it the other way around and Memento won’t stick to the coating. I did briefly heat set the ink just to be safe. The frame was die cut out of glittery designer paper with a gray patterned sheet behind it w/ the greeting stamped on it. I added some small punched circles of the same colored glitter paper inside the frame.

 Thanks so much for stopping by! Please be sure to visit and comment on all the Summer inspiration cards from the DT.

This month we also have a special guest designer!
