Beach Scene

I ordered this stamp after seeing it on a blog last week, oh I am bad! However it is gorgeous! It is by Impression Obsession. No matter how you color it, it looks great! I love beach related stamps and always look for them. I happened upon another set from a different company and well that is another post :) Apparently I am on a beach stamp set spree! This uses soft sky, taken with teal and close to cocoa for the layers. I stamped the silver dollar on kraft with choc. chip ink and cut it out, applied crystal effects and put a jump ring through it. I hung it from the hemp twine that is wrapped around the card through the brads. The other shells are stamped on kraft also and put on using pop dots. There is a bit of Stickles glitter here and there to make it sparkle. I used my Prisma colored pencils to color it in, the sky is sponged on with ink, and all of the edges are distressed too. I love this card! I hope you like it too :)
