CAS(E) This Sketch #403

Hey Everyone

Love me a classic clean sketch. The newest sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch is one of those. Take a look at their sketch:

I’ve been playing around all weekend with my floral stamp sets , so I decided to give the florals a break and create a card featuring the Friends are Like Seashells Stamp Set.

I love colouring. I find it really relaxing and find fussy cutting even more relaxing. The largest shell has been given a small amount of colour with Pool Party Blends and the Light Bermuda Bay Blend. The second shell is shaded with my Smoky Slate Blends. The little starfish has been given colour with the Bermuda Bay Blends. I then took my Stampin’ Blends Colour Lifter and took some colour from the centre of the starfish so it didn’t look all one tone.

To create the background of the card, I added some ink splatters in Black Memento Ink to the card base and then gave it some texture with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. I layered a piece of Peony Garden DSP, that I had sitting on my desk, and a torn piece of Bermuda Bay Cardstock to the card base. To this, I then added a piece of Braided Linen Trim.

Once all the shells were placed on the card, I then added a sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Narelle, there are many who have a knack for arranging flowers – I’m sure you’re great at that, too – but not too many who have such a lovely way with seashells! Your braided linen is the most beautiful stand-in for seaweed – or fishing nets!
    Thanks so much for playing along at CTS!
