Dear Beach!!

 I have a bestie that lives in Florida and we talk every day. She loves the beach!
I thought this card would be a great way to say hi to her.
I enjoy making and sending handmade cards.
I do have to say, that as I started out making one card with the white embossing powder and thought for sure that it wasn’t going to work as it would be too light, so I then created the second card with black embossing powder…which one do you like better?

Versamark ink
Embossing powder – white and black

Sponge tool
Assorted inks – peacock feather, tumbled glass, cracked pistachio
Archival ink – coffee

Paper trimmer

Step 1 – Lay the watercolor paper on the stamp platform and align the Open Weave Fishnet Background stamp over it. Ink the stamp with coffee archival ink and stamp image onto the watercolor paper.  Next move the stamp on the platform and ink a second and then a third time to cover the front of the watercolor paper.

Step 2 – Using the Dear Beach stamp, white embossing powder, and the Versamark ink, stamp the sentiment over the Fishnet Background and heat set the embossing powder.

Step 3 – Using the assorted ink colors and going from lightest to darkest color, sponge on the inks in a circular pattern covering the front of the card.  When you are finished with the ink, lightly wipe any excess off the sentiment.

Step 4 – Take the Bubbles from the Hearty Doodles stamp set and using the Versamark ink, stamp along the edges of the blue cardstock, this creates the illusion of sea bubbles, heat set.

Step 5 – Trim the sentiment piece down to fit on the blue cardstock, glue both pieces to the front of the card with tape runner and then add the assorted gems.
