Just a note

This card is inspired by Kim Kesti's sketch over at Skipping Stone Designs Blog along with the beautiful picture from For your inspiration

Love Skipping stone stamps. I don't own any but have a long wish list.  I'm not sure whether it is OK to enter the challenge using other stamps. 

Beautiful architecture from For your inspiration shaped kind of like a seashell.  I used colors of blue sky and orange lights.


Amuse seashell was stamped three times across, colored with brilliance pearlescent sky blue, and embellished with glitter.  I don't think I've ever seen blue seashell though.  

It also entered into City Crafter Challenge #66: It's a shore thing.

Thanks for stopping by.

Supplies:
Paper: Bazzill color card stock, PTI white card stock
Stamp: Amuse Avian notes, seashells
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, brilliance pearlescent sky blue
Other: glitter, rhinestone sticker, blending tips Pin It
