Now on to todays card!!! This is one of the most fun cards I have ever made:-) talk about getting the perfect embellishment.. he he, So excited to share this with you:-)
I stamped some plain white card stock with the Ledger Cling stamp and added the sentiment from the Essential messages stamp set by Hero arts.. It's one of my newer sets.. the sentiment was actually "just a note filled with many thanks" so I edited it!!
All the shells were stamped in Colorbox inks ( Silks and Satins & Chocolates and Blueberries) and then cut out, I used dimensional adhesive and layered them to look like they have been washed ashore, I added the little bottle with the message and the beads and a few pearls in it..
Background was done using the watercolour technique as that Joy did on one of her cards.. Loved this one, fantastic card!!
I used the Starburst lace stamp inked it lighty and sprayed with water, then stamped randomly all over, thats how I got the speckled effect. After that I used Chipped sapphire distress ink and distressed the edges and then sprinkled a few drops of water as a final touch.
One more view of it:-) I love the dimension the pearls bring to an otherwise plain background..
This is the link to the little shop where I got the bottles on Etsy:
