The Sparkles Challenge this month is Summer Fun and/or At the Beach!
For my card, I used an acrylic block to create the background for my stamped layer. I used distress inks direct to the block then spritzed it with water and "stamped" it onto watercolor paper. Once it dried, I used DeNami sea shells and DeNami seagulls stamps; the sentiment is from Mark's Finest Papers Island Life stamp set. I used Stampendous Frantage Shabby White Embossing Enamel to give the look of specks of sand and then added some small adhesive pearls. I used 3 small shells to embellish the right lower corner, some twine and a wooden flourish. I mounted the stamped panel onto a piece of corrugated cardstock; the overall card size is 5 x 7.
We hope you'll share your Summer Fun and/or Beach creations with us! You can find the challenge HERE.
