OLW39

Susan Raihala's one layer challenge this week (to stamp an image, use a border stamp and add bling in some form) got the ol' creative juices flowing. The shell border was stamped with Encore gold metallic ink and gold embossed. The palm tree was stamped with Brilliance Pearlescent inks in Rich Cocoa and Thyme. I added Stickles Rock Candy to the edge to imitate the foamy look of the air bubbles created as waves crash ashore.

I made some other cards with a shell/beach theme but they don't meet the challenge requirements, so I'll save those for another day ; )

As always, your visit is most appreciated and inspires me to post, so thank you.

Hugs,
Colleen
