Ocean Treasures

I love the sea. It was pure joy to use a Ocean Treasures #560 stamp set to make this card.

I inked the white cardstock with Broken China and Salty Ocean Distress Inks and Summer Sky Memento ink. Then I applied Versamark ink on top and covered it with Velvet Sparkle EP. After melting the powder with heat tool, I stamped the grass with StazOn Jet Black ink. It is die cut with Oval die. I matted it on top of the larger oval which was stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Satin Velvet EP.

All the seashells are stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Satin Velvet EP. I colored images with Promarkers, covered them with Versmark ink and heat embossed with Opaline EP to make them shiny. They are fussy cut with scissors. Some of the shells are adhered with foam tape and others are glued right to the background.

For the embellishments I used some twine and Mon Ami Gabby large and small Pearl Mesh cut in parts. Label shape under neath the oval is die cut out of white cardstock Which was covered with 2 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape" and Terrific Blue glitter.

Background is covered with 2 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape". I used x-acto knife to cut the protective sheet of the tape in parts. Then I started to "paint" the scene with glitters: Terrific Blue to the frame, Florida Beach to the sand, Waterfall to the sea and Cloud Nine to the sky.


Glitters: Terrific Blue (G1127), Florida Beach (G1111), Waterfall (G1071), Cloud Nine (GM2000);
Embossing Powders: Velvet Sparkle (EP437), Satin Velvet (EP209), Opaline (EP359);
