How these days in January make me long for the beach. I guess I shouldn’t complain since the weather here has been sunny and in the 70’s but I just can’t help thinking of long summer days at the beach. This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a beach theme but I still have Valentine’s day on the brain. So when I began to think of what to create for this challenge I thought of the sea…love…Eureka!!…The Sea of Love! So here’s my interpretation of this week’s beach theme challenge.
I used the Lots of Love Letterpress plate for the background. I inked it up with Versamark then ran it through the Big Shot and to add sparkle I heat embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. The sentiment is stamped in Indigo Blue and also heat embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.
I hope you can see how the Sea of Love shimmers with the Iridescent Ice. The fish are made with various Stampin’ Up! heart punches. I couldn’t resist the wiggle eyes. The sand is Crumb Cake card stock sponged with Soft Suede ink. This card would be perfect to give to your hubby or wife. Either way love is in the air or rather the sea.
I hope you’re inspired to join us this week with your beach themed creation. Hop on over to HSS for more inspiration from our very talented design team.
