Let's Shell-ebrate

I had made a few extra die cuts with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling Card and Impression Obsession Cloud Background. I was crafting with my sister when she asked me about adding water to a beach scene she was trying to create. It made me think of a scalloped punch as waves so I tried it out. I punched the scallop border punch from cardstock and then added some Distress Ink in light to darker shades of blue. I loved the way it turned out and so I made a few and even created my own stencil with some plastic. In fact I had to make one for my sister too because she loved it just as much. So I've created a video to help explain the process better.

For this finished card I added Lawn Fawn turtles from Critters in the Sea and balloons and hats from Year Four colored with Inktense pencils. Then I stamped a sentiment from Paper Smooches Party Posse and birds from Lawn Fawn's Life's A Beach.
