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.
