By the Sea...

Hello my Inky Friends!

Today I have several cards to share with you filled with shells.

Rubber Stamp Tapestry released several brand new peg stamp sets and two of those sets are lovely sea shell mixes - Fine and Sandy and Seaside Treasures

I wanted to step outside of my color safe zone and decided to go with orange as the main color on this card. I started off by creating the background with stipple brushes and VersaMagic inks (chalk inks). These inks/colors are perfect for this beachy card.

I went with teal,coral and gingerbread for my second card again using the VersaMagic Inks.  This time I wanted something clean and simple...or at least that was my goal. I'm sure CAS purists will say there are too many shells but once I got started I kind of got carried away. I drew a simple line box leading down to the sentiment.  It is mounted on a piece of Turquoise/Gold Glossy Rinea Foiled Paper to add just an extra touch of elegance.

I wanted bold in your face colors for this tag/card combo. All of the stamping was done using VersaFine Clair inks which really pop.  The background of the tag was made using Nuance pigment powders in greens and blues. 

My final card was created using both of the sea shell sets as well as the Undersea Adventure set that has the darling fish, squid, jellyfish and more. I used Gina Marie's Stitched CIrcle Plate Background Die as a jumping off point and created 6 little underwater scenes.

I hope this inspires you to get in the beachy mood.
Have a wonderful day friends!!
Stay Inky :)
