SQSC48–Beach Bathing By the Seashore!

Shades of Coral, Sand, and Aqua present themselves for a beach themed card for today’s Stampin’ Queens Sketch Challenge!  Featuring the Fancy Fan Folder and By the Seashore Stamp Set… I hope you like it!beachy colors and sqsc48 challengeCard stock and Ink colors used include Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Sahara Sand.  Additional sponging was added to the stamped and embossed shells using crumb cake ink.with a little help from square lattice folder and markersWith all the sponging and square lattice folder embossing… I lost some of the seashell and sand dollar stamped lines, so simply added them back in with the fine point tip of calypso coral and Sahara Sand markers.love this tiny postage stamp punch, don't you?

Four elements of  ‘bling’ were added using basic rhinestone jewels… one to the center of the starfish stamped image, and one to each of the tiny postage stamp punches.  It’s just like the sparkle in the ocean and waves at the beach… and you need a little bling at the beach, LOL!SQSC48_on_Createdbyu_Blogspot

Here’s the sketch for today’s Stampin’ Queens Design Team Challenge!  You know the drill, LOL… be sure to copy and paste the URL of your creation using the linky tool at the Stampin’ Queens Sketch Challenge Blog!

I’m back from a whirlwind trip north…. and tired after five days of almost constant travel!!  It was good to see family members, and enjoy the celebration of marriage with my DH’s nephew… but that’s a LOT of travel in 5 days with NO STAMPS!!  Once I’m rested up I’ll be back in the Stampin’ Studio Winking smile.

I look forward to reading your sweet comments!

Hugs,

Sharon
