For MariLynn's MIX215challenge. Like using stencils as a resist with sprays, I found this game out more muted than I wanted, but that's OK.
my first attempt came out even more muted, so for this one I used some Fabriano watercolour paper which I don't find great because it's too absorbent. I sponged it (DTP, a la TLC) with distress inks, laid an SU mask over and spritzed with water.
Then when I was sure it was dry, I stamped the shell, birds and sentiment, and then added the water stamp and some embossed "sand" with distress ep.
Pieced an extra shell on, stamped on a scrap of Bokeh background, stitched round the edges with a metallic thread, wiped with white ink and then dotted in with a white gel pen.
Base is scribbled with gelatos, blended with my finger and stamped with the sand from Shore Thing.

Beautiful as always, Sabrina - You managed to get a lovely ghosted image in the bg and I really like the subtle waves you stamped in. I am amazed at the added glow you got by adding the white gel dots on the inner frame.
