Little Treasures

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at the Double D Challenge blog. Team Darlene is hosting this challenge with the theme “Let’s Go to the Beach”. You can use the colours or anything DD_Beachyou see in the mood board as inspiration for your creation. The team have created beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile.

My card was inspired by the brown colours and sea shells in the inspiration photo. I decided to  create a masculine card with a stamped image which I coloured with my watercolour pencils.  I added a strip of netting on the base card for texture and then lifted the top layer from the base card with mirror tape for dimension.  I finished off by embellishing the water with a aqua shimmer pen, a few gemstones and a wax cord bow

I also entered my card in the following challenges:

    Wonderful design, Amelia. I love the little bit of ribbon in the back that adds so much texture, and the scene is so relaxing and reminds me of shelling on the beach.
