The Deep Blue Sea....Or Ocean!

Good evening!  Another fabulous Fall day here, feels like summer, but without all of the!!

Today's card will be entered into the Challenge at Stamp TV, Over The Deep Blue Sea and the Challenge at Simon Says Monday, O Is For.....and in this case, I am going with OCEAN.....again!

I used the stamp set, Gifts From The Sea, from Gina K Designs just perfect for these 2 Challenges!  I used water color pencils to create the background, sky, sea, and sand, making a darker line to distinguish sky from sea.  Then I covered the sand in a bronze colored glitter and the sea with a little white sparkly glitter and also made a little foam line with chunky white glitter.  Stamping 6 different shells and coloring them with Copic Markers, I fussy cut them out.  Then I layered all on white and blue card stock twice to add dimension.  Wrapping some thin twine 3 times around adding a pearl as I went.  I quite like how this card came out and it is more sparkly in real life.  Can you smell that fresh salty air?  Ahhhhh.......
Thanks for joining me at my beach!
