For Sketch Challenge 125. I can't stop thinking about the beach lately, must be Summer soon! So with that in mind this stamp seemed perfect for that 1.25 x 3.5 inch panel. I used the crayon resist technique and sponged on the colors. The caramel background is stamped with versamark then I used perfect pearls on the shells to make them shimmery. I also put some stickles in the sand area to make it shimmer a little too. I had the shell charm lying around, it had broken off of a bookmark and I thought it looked great on this card. I doodled the edges with a black marker and used some nailheads in the corners. Used scalloped scissors for the edging, now that I know to mark it with a line to follow it's easy! Of course I had to take the picture with the matching shell.
