Sea You!

When I got the colors this week for the Splitcoast Color Challenge I immediately thought "beachy".  The colors are Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Strawberry Slush.  For this card there is a bit of all of them. I used Distress Inks to create my colors as I don't have SU inks.

I made my own background on a 4 x 4" Art Square. First I used paint to stencil nautilus shells on the white background. After they were dry I smooshed some Distress Inks on my mat and spritzed with water. I then waited for that to dry and stamped a word stamp randomly onto the background. Finally I sprayed Shimmer Spritz Sparkle over the whole thing.

The seashells are made from glossy card stock. I used various Adirondack Alcohol Inks Lights to color the glossy card stock.  Before attaching the shells to my finished piece I used a foam pad and big ball stylus to curve the pieces so they would have dimension.
