Sea Shells By The Sea Shore

Sometimes I start out to do one thing with a card and it turns out totally different. This is one of those times.

The stamp is Seashell Collage by Impression-Obsession. It was stamped with Brilliance Galaxy Gold and painted with Twinkling H2O's. The beads were highlighted with Glossy Accents. The Nautilus Shell and the Conch Shell opening were covered with Jones Tones Pearl Swirl. The Conch Shell was streaked with Gesso along the shell ridges. Other areas of the different shells were were highlighted with Rangers Stickles Diamonds glitter glue. The words were enhanced with a Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip marker followed by a Copic At You Spica Gold pen. The ribbon is May Arts. The large brass Starfish is one I bought at the Kissimmee, FL, Stamp Fest and highlighted with Stickles Diamonds glitter glue.

The background is Stardream Chiara Rose Quartz paper. I used the Cuttlebug Smoosh Technique from Technique Junkies, but it is hard to see here.

Thanks for stopping by "the blog" to look.
