Seashells

Hi everyone! Hope things are good and wonderful. I have been gone for a few days and trying to get back into this. We went over to the Coast and it is so nice and cool breezes. Then..... we came home to tons of laundry and thinking, did I really leave that mess?? Did I mention the heat?? We really did have a nice visit with my girls and family.
My card today is for the challenge over at JustRite Stamper. To make a note card not larger than four inches using a shape from Nestabilities. Just coming from the coast I thought Seashells sounded great. I just love this set by JustRite Stamps. "By the Sea"


Starting with the background I used Spellbinders Big Scalloped Oval lg. and Impressabilities Sea Scape and then for the big shell, I used the sunrays technique and cut it out using Spellbinders Big Scalloped circle Lg. Then I colored my image with copic's. Card stock is SU and Creamy Caramel ink pad.

Have a good one and thanks for stopping by.
