Stella's At The Beach

Hello and welcome.  I'm still guest designing for Bugaboo Stamps and this week's challenge over at Catch The Bug is a photo challenge.  That's right.  We're going to the beach!  For my project, I decided to use Stella Outdoorsy.

After combining the image and saying in Microsoft Word, I printed it off and colored using both prismacolor and copic markers.  I then stippled some Tim Holtz tumbled glass and broken china distress inks over and around the edges before adding some Adirondack caramel ink before layering and adding to my card.  For the card, I just went with a textured caramel base with  some light blue bakers twine around it.  I then highlighted parts of the image using Sakura 3D glaze pens before adding some hand drawn birds and brads.  The final touches were a punched crab from red scrap card stock and a never before used (NBUS) shell charm I've had how for years.  The charm was adhered using Ranger Glossy Accents.  As an afterthought, I added another punched crab to the inside as well as a punch sand dollar also from scraps.
