Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge 11

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have an inspiration challenge from Pottery Barn – Sea Shells.  There are so many thoughts that come to mind when I see the photo – serenity and peace are two I think of immediately.  My friend’s mother-in-law passed away this past weekend and I needed to make a sympathy card for her so this challenge provided inspiration.  I stamped the shells in Versamark and embossed them with clear embossing powder, used My Digital Studio for the sentiment and printed it on vellum.  I used the White Shimmery paper which you should be able to see when you enlarge the photo.  I love this paper it’s just the right amount of shimmer.  Erin the other designer on our Hand Stamped Sentiments design team gave me a few sheets of this paper and I love it.  I’ll need to purchase some because it will add a touch of elegance to any project.
