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.
All supplies used are Stampin’ Up! unless otherwise noted.
