I started with a base of Certainly Celery. My first layer is Coredinations paper. I ran it thru the cb with the Wallpaper ef. I love that ef. Then I sanded it to bring out the white core. The next layer is a Shapeability called Lotus then I cut my image out using the Labels 14 from Spellbinder. I used Antique Linen distressing ink on all the edges of everything. I did it lightly but I liked it better after putting this ink on. I popped each layer up using dimensionals. My image was stamped using Summer By The Sea in Momento Ink. This is one of my favorite stamp sets. I colored it using Copics. This is for the Twisted Sister Challenge and the challenge was to stamp anything to do with the ocean, use ribbon not twine and at least one embellishment. My ribbon was in my stash and it probably came from Wal-Mart. Then I added Prima flower in the corner. It is also purple but looks pink in the picture. I then put my purple pearls in the corner. I can't hardly make a girly card w/o using pearls. I also put an angel fish on my envelope. I love purple! Bet you could tell!
We would love to have you join us. If you do make sure in the keywords you put TSC0729.
Thanks for looking!

OH My goodness but this is beautiful! First of all, your coloring is fantastic! Then you really knocked your socks off by how you put this whole piece of art together! Sistah Pat sent me several of this image and I have used them many times too and just love it each time. I have been lusting after both of these Nesties and soon I'm going to get them. Outstanding job on this challenge!

Oh Sylvia...this is one of my all time fav SU sets, and one I hang on to dearly. Such a sweetness about it! Love your gorgeous colors, beautiful cuttle-buggin' and that dreamy bloom. Very tender card. LYMI....
