Voice of the Sea

Hi Stampers,
With summer winding down I thought I'd better use set 404 Ocean Treasures before it was too late for the summer season. This card was made for my monthly club meeting. We were all given a cute little fun foam shape, and I got the star fish. I knew it would make a great addition to a card using the stamps from Ocean Treasures from Sparkle N Sprinkle.


I used a border die and cut 2 borders and attached them together  to make a wide side border. Then I added small seashells down the center of that border. I also used a portion of the die to add a wave effect using 2 colors of blue CS . I stamped the seashells & colored with Copic Markers . Next I added a sun made from a small rosette and positioned the sentiment on top. After attaching  a few rays to the sun this card is finished.This set would be perfect for a scrapbook layout as well.

I will be back tomorrow with an Art Impressions card. Hope to see you then.

Thanks for stopping in today,

This is so lovely! The rosette for the sun is genius and I love how the row of real shells echo the line of stamped ones...Great card!

These colors and textures (made with the punches) are perfectly befitting a day at the beach! Love the sun - it's a wonderful application for the rosette!
