Seaside Thank You

Hi there everyone!

I loved the last Paper Players sketch challenge and had an idea for it all set up in my head. Then life got in the way so I missed the challenge deadline, but decided to go ahead with my idea anyway using Penny Black products.

First of all, I stamped the beachy wreath from Seashells set (30-843) in a light ink and coloured it with my Twinkling H2O paints. Then I put the coloured image back in my MISTI, stamped it with Versamark and heat embossed it using white pearl embossing powder! I fussy cut the wreath before starting on my tag, which is from the Tagged die set (51-007). I sponged it lightly with distress ink and them popped the wreath on top to work out where to place the sentiment. After stamping the sentiment from the Ever Thanks set (30-813), I adhered the wreath to the tag and then the tag to my card base.

I felt like the card was still missing something and so I decided to add some small shell embellishments. I had so much fun creating these with shrink plastic! I haven’t used it for years! I ended up using the same ink for the shells and sentiment as lighter inks just didn’t seem to show up at all, which was odd as colours usually intensify when you heat shrink plastic.

Thanks for stopping by!
