Seaside Greetings!

Hello, again! This post is for the new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu, which beginning August 1 goes to once a month challenges (Pink and Purple)! I picked the theme for the Pink Team, this time, which is "Seaside or Nautical."  Given the time of year, perhaps you are already working on something that would fit this theme.  We sure hope you consider sharing with us over at EE!  If you need some inspiration, why not stop over to EE and see all the gorgeous samples the Pink Team has created for you?  For my own project, I gravitated to an 8" x 8" card.  The card front was stamped repeatedly using Ranger Black Archival Ink with gorgeous sea shells images from Red Lead Paperworks.  The shells were than hand tinted using Distress Inks in a variety of soft shell-like colors.  The black and white images and sentiments are from a collage sheet, also by Red Lead Paperworks.  Embroidered ribbon, a bit of lace, some burlap string, a gold shell charm and photo corners complete my card.  Thanks for stopping by and for you encouraging comments.  They are each read and treasured.  Hugs, Yvonne

Another fabulous sea themed design! These black and white images look are so beautifully arranged, kind of random in an orderly way, and they look great on a plain, white background!
