Water & Sand (LSC224)

The Limited Supplies Challenge was called "Water and Sand" meaning we could use ANY theme we wanted as long as we used blues and/or greens and neutrals (for the water and sand) plus, we had to follow the list which was to use brads, ribbon or twine and paper piercing. All three of those items were required. What a fun challenge!! I took the Water & Sand title seriously I guess. I used Nestabilities to cut the circles, embossed the Baja Breeze circle with the Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles embossing folder and sponged it with Pacific Point. I stamped the shell with Creamy Caramel on a scrap of Blush Blossom and cut it out. I punched the "coral" from a scrap of Kiwi Kiss with the Martha Stewart Branches Punch. The seahorse was stamped with Basic Black on a scrap of Certainly Celery. After cutting it out, it looked kind of dull to me, so I used the VersaMarker on it and embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. Now, it's shiny! The shell and the seahorse are popped up as well as the whole scallop circle panel. I used brads in the upper left, ribbon near the bottom, and I pierced the very bottom to look like waves. Thanks for stopping by!!!
