Thanks for coming back for the details if you got my initial post. For some reason, I am always under the wire getting my PPA card challenge completed and submitted by the time deadline of 12 noon on Tuesdays. Thus, I didn’t have time to give any details on the project until I got the card submitted right on time.

This week’s Pals Paper Arts challenge are the following colors:6a011572200a0f970b01b8d12445b4970c-300wi

I had originally wanted to us the SU! stamp set Wood You Be Mine?, but I couldn’t pull the card together in my mind’s eye. Then, I thought of the retired SU! stamp set Seaside. I layered the shells from this stamp set using a mask and, quite by accident, I made a stamped image from a newly inked pad where the ink had not settled into the pad of the large conch shell. I had already stamped initial image and I cut out the darker portions of the over inked image and layered it on top of the original image. I made a double layered mat from Marina Mist card stock layered on Sahara Sand card stock and stamped coral as a back drop for the fish from By The Tide which was stamped with Early Espresso onto Pool Party card stock and highlighted with Stampin’ Write markers. The shells, fish, and sentiment (“Happy Birthday” – Sprinkles of Life SU! stamp set) are raised with SU! dimensionals.


Supplies: Seaside SU! retired stamp set; Stampin’ Write Markers – Calypso Coral, Pistachio Pudding, Hello Honey, Coastal Cabana
