JRC_037 Shells

Hello Everyone!!!  Today I've made a card for this week's JustRite Stampers JRC_037 challenge, which is a sketch!!!  I love sketch challenges and this one is a fabulous one!!!  To make it that much sweeter, the challenge is being sponsored by Stampers Dream and their incredible design team also have samples to share!!

I've started with a base of brown bazzill and layered with teal bazzill and then some Le Chateau DP - which I've pierced around the top.  The horizontal panel is more teal punched with the Deco Fan border punch and topped with more brown and more Le Chateau.  Over the top of this I've added a sailor's knot to carry on the beachy theme.  I've chosen the shells from JustRite's By The Sea set, stamping it in Memento Rich Cocoa onto X-press It Blending Card and colouring with Copics (E000, E01, E11, E21, E50, E51, YR000, YR00, YR02, RV10, YG91, YG93, BG0000).  It was cut out with Large Circle Nestabilities and matted with teal cut with Small Circle Nestabilities and then framed with brown cut with Spellbinders' Fancy Tags which was then popped up on foam tape.

Stamps - By The Sea (JustRite)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Brown and Teal Bazzill, Kaisercraft Le Chateau DP
Ink - Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories - Small and Large Circle Nestabilities, Fancy Tags Shapeabilities, Martha Stewart Deco Fan Border Punch, Twine, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Foam Tape.

Great colours and image. Love the twine with the knot at the bottom and your border punch is perfect for the image :) If it were summer here I'd want to head to the beach LOL!
