I feel like I'm already at the beach.
How about you?
I had fun creating this card because I just thought of the warm tropical breezes with blue ocean water and sea shells washing up on the beach all the while I was gluing on each little shell on this card. I was sure to use light blue paper for the background to help co-inside with the feeling of the beautiful light blue water that is so prevalent in the Caribbean. I then used some gauge that I had in the house and colored it green and blue on the background with my inks. I had hoped this would give it the look of an old fishing net. However, I really didn't have much room for the gauge on this small card of 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 to really show it off.
Close ups for you.
I also had a $1.00 stamp that I used for stamping the little sea shells to the front of the card. How about that ity, bitty, real star fish? I just love that!
The flowers remind me a bit of water Lilly's. Although, water Lillie's are not from the the ocean? Just water related.
Next time your at the ocean grab a
few little shells for your next card.
Thanks for joining me here today.
Blessings to each of you...
