Dive In Sea Beauty

The warm breezes are blowing and you can smell the sea today, so I had to create this little sea card for 100 Proof Press. You know that I adore  and collect sea shells so using their 100 Proof Press sea shell stamp is just my thing! Everyone must have the same feeling so I am also entering this in Fashionable Stamping Challenege #19  Nautical and Happy Daze Challenge April Showers where we are to use water or  a water theme. Please do check out all these sites for fun challenges.

I started this card by using Distress Ink to edge kiss my sandy colored background. I love how it adds depth to our backgrounds. I layered some sea shell transparencies , a script image, and a pretty sea side scene from Artchix Studio. The dimensional paper sea shells came next and are accented with Rangers Liquid Pearls. The little sea beauty is 100 Proof Press stamp Victorian Woman # 2943. She was fussy cut and colored with pencils and Liquid Pearls. The sea shell plate #5990 stamp came next. The tiny little sentiment circles "Dive in Sea beauty" completed this aquatic card.

Hope you will experience the sea this week.
take care, gerri
