Summer Fun

Welcome!  As summer nears an end, my thoughts turn to fun at the beach.  I created this card with a sketch from The House That Stamps Built challenge using Repeat Impressions Sand Castle and Sentiment stamps and Gina K Seashell stamps from Gifts from the Sea.  Scene was stamped with Memento Toffee Crunch and colored with Copic Markers.  The seashells were stamped, colored, and fussy cut and heat embossed with Clear EP for shine and texture. They almost look like real shells.  Cardstocks used are Gina K Soft Sand and Tan Leather, White  and Kraft CS from stash.  Other Inks used are Dessert Sand and Espresso Truffle.

The House That Stamps Built: What If? Wednesday Sketch Challenge #A2416
Double D Challenges: Neutrals.  My sandy colors fit into this challenge.
Allsorts Challenge: Week 378 Use at least 2 dies.  I used an oval and a scalloped oval die.

Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa

Wow! Great take on our sketch!! And beach themed cards are always fabulous! Your seashell elements worked perfectly for the "circles" in the sketch. Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built.

How cute this is, Theresa! Sand castles are definitely a summertime beach thing and definitely makes a perfect neutral-colors card for our challenge at Double D. Thanks for playing along!
