Good Saturday morning.  Summer is almost here and I have a beach card  to share with you today using the new Impression Obsession Shell Border with soft colors and a touch of sparkle and ocean surf.

I cut the shell border piece using cream colored cardstock.  I applied Antique Linen and Worn Lipstick ink to the shells using a mini applicator.  I used a very light touch when adding the ink to the shells to keep the colors soft.  I applied the Antique Linen ink across the whole top portion of the beach area  and created an uneven sandy border so I could create the ocean surf washing up on shore.  I applied Tumbled Glass ink to create the surf water.

I used the Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen to add some shimmer and sparkle to the sand and the shell border but it doesn’t show well in the photos.  I applied Cosmic glitter glue to the water using my finger and then sprinkled with clear glitter.  I heat set the glue and glitter and then applied the white embossing paste with my finger along the surf’s edges to create the appearance of foam.  I finished by adding the Salt Life sentiment. I used the same soft blue paper for the sentiment that I used for the card base.

Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend.  I’m sure looking forward to three days off from work.
