Nature's Nest - Shells

This little card is 4" square.  The shells are stamped in Jet Black StazOn, colored with watercolor pencils and blended with an Aqua Painter. The sand is stamped with retired Itty Bitty Backgrounds because I seem to have misplaced my Color Spritzer tool, which would have given a similar effect!  A little Gold Encore ink is also stamped in the sand and on some of the shells.  I'm sorry it doesn't show up in the photo!  I used the little half-pearl for an accent because it reminds me of the mother-of-pearl that is found inside a shell.
The envelope is handmade and stamped with chocolate chip ink on the flap.

Stamps: Nature's Nest, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Itty Bitty Backgrounds (retired)
