Seashells

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I had a lovely day yesterday, hubby and I went off out for a nice mooch around the shops and a walk.

I had a relaxing day and made this card which I am sharing with you all today. This card is all about the seaside in celebration of the gorgeous weather we are having at the moment in the UK.


Recipe

1. 8 x 8 white square card.
2. The background I created using marbling inks and it made the perfect background for my under the sea scene.
3. Using Sheena Douglass A little bit Scenic Underwater stamps sets I created the scene. The fish, seaweed and one of the sea horses were stamped onto other pieces of card which had been marbled cut out and decoupaged.
4. I then cut out the frame using blue card and SB Square die inked the edges with Versamagic Pumpkin Spice, stamped the sentiment with Adirondak Denim and embossed then adhered to the background with foam tape.
5. To finish off I stamped the shells on another marbled background with Versafine Vintage Sepia, embossed, cut them out and arranged around the frame.


Many thanks for visiting today
Hugs xxxxx

Gorgeous work. I always loved sea shells and esp fossils of sea creatures. Here in TX, these are the types of fossils you find most frequently.
