Seashore Sketch – CCMC #249

This week’s challenge over at Create with Connie and Mary is to use a sketch.

Now I’d like to think it was just a case of following the sketch and… ta da… job done! Ha, ha! Things are never that simple, well at least not for me. If I tell you I started with a green/yellow/white idea and then progressed to using papers from the Print Poetry stack, you’ll wonder how I ended up creating this:


I’m wondering too! I can only blame it on my current seashore obsession. I stamped the seashell on to the Whisper White using Marina Mist, then layered up all the papers, using the sketch to assist, before running the ribbon across. I stamped the label, taken from the Pop-Up Posies kit, and then added the seashell and starfish images. I’ve curled these too give a bit of added dimension. I also used Dimensionals to apply the label.



Love this beachy colour combination and adore the little pearls.
