SEA SHELLS

Hi friends.  Yeah, it's the weekend!  Hope the weather is good for you wherever you are and that you have something fun planned.

Today's card is made using a new Spellbinder's 3D M-Bossabilities Folder called Shell Beauty.  These folders have a sculptured surface and the embossing is just beautiful.

 
Here is a closeup of the detail of the embossing.

 
Another closeup
 
 
I embossed on very light blue pearlescent card stock.
I used a stipple brush and different colors of distress and dye inks to enhance
the embossing.
Distressed the edges and mounted on a piece of off-white speckled paper.
Hemp and tag (Stampin up punch) 
Sentiment - Just Rite Stamps
 
Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great weekend.  Until later.........

Sue, it is AMAZING! And the colors have captured my heart - they are beautifully soft, so like the beach, and just beautiful beautiful beautiful! As it is, I have the same embossing folder, already having embossed the image on white pearlescent card stock. Thank you for sharing how you achieved the look in your card. I will try stippling, too! Very pretty! hugs, de
