Yes, I know this is very similar to my other seashell card...but there are a few differences. Instead of pencil crayons and gamsol, this time I water coloured the sea and sand on some 140 lb watercolour paper. It dried nice and flat...I count myself lucky! Added some of those stamped, coloured and fussy cut sea shells, popping forward the conch and the starfish for some depth.
My card base was white and looked too stark with the cream watercolour paper so I covered it with Creative Impressions Sonnet Sea Side DP. Somehow I managed to rumple one edge so I distressed the edges with the blade of my scissors, and inked them with Ingvild Bolme Prima Chalk Ink, Black Coal. That looked a little too dark so I inked over it with her white chalk ink...that toned it down!
Mounted my watercolour topper and thought I was done, until I opened the card and managed to get some ink on the inside. Drat! Cut a bit more of the Sea Side DP and used it to hide my inky mistake.
I will stamp a sentiment here, once I decide what this card will be used for!
I don't like this one as much as the previous seashell card I did with pencil crayons and gamsol...but hopefully whoever I send it to will enjoy it!
I am entering this card in the following challenges
