By The Sea, Craft a Scene Challenge

This challenge, over at Craft a Scene blog was a new one for me to enter, but I just happen to have some Scenescape stamps, so I dragged out a couple and dusted them off :)

I've used glossy cardstock for the main image and SU! cardstock for the rest of the card, a SU! stamp on the right edge, a fiskars punch for the fancy edge, some beachy embellishments, and some twine. I took my SU! and Vivid! ink pads and just swiped them across the glossy card stock to get the sea and sky background.



The sand along the bottom of the driftwood and the stones is sand all the way from Scotland--very special :)



It was hard to get a good view of the Gelly Roll, Clear star, pen I put on the waves without getting a glare off the glossy paper, but you can kind of see it here.



Thanks for stopping by, please check out the Craft a Scene blog :)
