A Shell in Your Pocket!

Summer time and sea shells -- they just seem to go together.I stamped all of the sea shells on a blue gray piece of card stock.  Then I covered them with a variety of colors of embossing powders, heat set them, and then fussy cut them out.  I added watercolor paints over the embossing  and let the watercolors sink into the card stock to add the other subtle color differences.

The base card is a pale aqua. On that I layered a a tan colored card stock and over that is a piece of tan vellum on which I stamped a couple of background stamps and used a pale tan embossing powder.  I used the stamp Wasted* without a block. I inked it up with Versamark -- curled the stamp and used the smaller dots in different places in the Key Script stamped image.

The Technique Junkie stamps I used are:
Shells, Set of Four -
Key Script -
*Wasted -

The verse from Shells is inked with Black Versafine ink, and covered with clear embossing powder.I used a watercolor marker and colored in the spaces in the letters. It is layered on a die cut piece of tan card stock.

Have a wonderful day and may the days be getting warmer and warmer -- and get inky!
