Hope everyone is OK and ready for the new challenge over at Sparkles Monthly Challenges, where our new theme is
Confession time from me - I found this a very hard challenge! Despite my best efforts and a good old rummage through both my rubber and digi stamps I couldn't find a single suitable image for this challenge! Time for some head scratching and panicking! Eventually I came up with the idea of a seaside style image with real shells. I found a beach image from a very old precoloured Michael Powell set of papers that I bought years ago but had forgotten about until the aforementioned great seashell hunt. Then I spent another hour playing hunt the seashells in my embellishment drawers .... if only I was more organised!!
Anyhow, enough waffling ... here's my card which I actually quite like after all the hassle!!
Here's a few close ups too:
The hollow shells were also a nightmare to stick down, in the end I packed them with foam squares and added glossy accents to the edges:
