FTTC 52f My Favorite Flourishes Set


It was such a tough decision, but I chose Seaside Life as my favorite Flourishes set. If you saw how discolored I have made these seashells, you would giggle! I just love nature and beachy things. This is the last of the Timeless Tuesday Anniversary challenges, and it is been a real pleasure for me, as I never got to do them the first time. This challenge is being hosted by Maki.
I created my own background paper using some of the smaller shells. My sponging has been done with an olive chalk ink. I decided to do a photo of the Copic markers that I used, since there were so many. All of the images were stamped in Rich Cocoa ink by Memento. I just adore the look of these shells each and every time I stamp them. Nothing is better then clean sharp images. I used Green Apple Pure Luxury card stock from Gina K Designs for my middle band. I did lots of cutting and popping to get dimension. Olive green pearls are my only embellishments.
Have a wonderful, crafty day.
