Summer shells

I’ve been wanting to work with shells ever since I got a new stamp set with a seaside theme. The stencilled blue is brighter in real life, and a bit sparkly as it’s pearl mist…


This layout is inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week. Number 300! Congratulations to them on a real milestone 🙂


The colours are from Hand Stamped Sentiments – the sentiment stamp is also new 🙂

Also entered in CAS on Sunday (Friday now – glad it changed)  #114 Birthday

And the haiku for this one:

Turned over like shells,
I wonder how I appear:
Battered by life’s waves?

    I adore your stenciled background! It looks like little bubbles behind your neatly arranged shells. Thanks for playing along with us at Hand Stamped Sentiments!
