Rainbow Color Shells I shell miss you Card

Created this card with rainbow photo inspiration that you can see below and focus on sentiment.

Stamped Hero Arts shells using HA Ombre inks. Used MISTI tool and had to make a few tries to get it straight w/ good spacing and to look the way I wanted it to look. Used a HA stamp set for 'I miss you' & cut apart the 'I' from the 'miss you' which in this case since I have more letters to add in between was easier than masking. Used HA alphabet stamp set to spell 'shell' to complete pun phrase:
'I shell miss you'
and since there is only 1 of each letter I had to use the 'l' letter twice. Used some pens for touchup on the sentiment.

Used Tim Holtz ink to color the white cardstock for more of an beach/ocean/water look.

Used several layers of blue cardstock behind Kraft brown cardstock to add more rainbow effect.

Photographed the card on my bed with beach bed linens.
