Here is my sample card for this weeks Stampin' Royalty Picture Inspiration Challenge!
I used a few different techniques on this card, most notably the main panel. i heat embossed the shell in White on Night of Navy cardstock,, then used white craft ink to kind of 'distress' the edges and also kind of fill in the shell so it looked highlighted. The striped portion on the bottom was done by gluing down strips of Night of Navy cardstock. The background paper was done by stamping a coordinating shell in Night of Navy ink in a random pattern, then kind of shading the insides with my blender pen. I also spattered some ink to distress it further. I used white gel pen to make the stitching, and Night of Navy to do the stitching on the main panel and sentiment portion. :o)
