She sells seashells.....

Wow, we had a nice break from our hot weather, on Sunday and Monday. Seems things will be heating up again in the forecast for Wednesday. I heard someone say 30 degrees, which in Victoria, is not seen often....so here is hoping the forecasters are wrong!
Here are another 2 cards using Swirly Seashells patterned paper, that I made.
I stamped the main shell with Versamark ink, then embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder. I used our watercolour paints to colour it in, Since it was a small piece, I used our White Daisy cardstock, rather than watercolour paper. Then I cut our the shell image and popped it up on some foam tape. I added the shell over some White Twine I smooshed through Desert Sand ink, before fringing and tying it up.
 I used Crystal Blue cardstock and sanded it down. I covered Bambo cardstock with random stamped images from NEW, Swirly Seashells stamped with Cocoa ink. I punched a scalloped border on some Desert Sand cardstock, then added it as a mat. The sentiments are from sets, Way To Go on the top card and a sentiment set from our Flower Market Cricut package. Both were stamped with Cocoa ink. I added Mini Pearls to finish the cards.

All supplies are Close To My Heart.
