Shimmery Shells

Some fantastic challenges got me back into my craft room to create this card that features the very first stamp set that I ever bought, Seaside by SU!

Shimmery Shells

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the colour combo at the Color Throwdown this week as it features a selection of my all time favourite colours.

The second challenge at Just Add Ink, was to CASE one of their talented DT Members, Kathy from Stamping Still. I've had the first 2 cards of Kathy's in my CASE folder for a while (see below) so I thought it was a good opportunity to try out one of her gorgeous 'grid' cards. I love the sepia tones that she has used and the faux pearl on the last card. Stunning!

So ... I stuck to the beautiful layout of all three cards to create my CASE card for JAI #102.

I am also entering this card in the challenge at Sentimental Sundays which is to add some dry embossing to your project. I only just recently came across this challenge site and have been keen to play along.

All products are from SU and I have used Frost White Shimmer Paint to stamp all the images.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

A bright, shimmery and colourful take on Kathy's card. It is so cool when we can finally play with an old set that hasn't seen ink for a while, eh?! I have been doing that too ♥

Gorgeous Bron! Love how you mixed up the squares into different colours. Its quite fun to see all the different variations of this card of Kathy's. I had no idea you could stamp that well in shimmer paint either!!
