Summer Classics-Sea Side Life

Flourishes,llc are bringing you another Summer Classic today.  Again we have the wonderful artistry of Marcella Hawley. As Julie said perfectly ” I don’t think you need me to tell you — she is a master at bringing out the best in a stamp set!”  The name of this set is Sea Side Life.

Sea Side Life copy

Living on the water, sea life is important to me.  I love to walk along the beach.  One of of the treasures of these walks are the sea shell I collect. I love the smell of the salt air, the feel of the sand under feet,seeing the sea oats that sway in the breeze, the changing shape of the sand dunes.  Each of  these is a beauty is truly a gift of nature.  Needless to say these are treasures in my life.

So here is  a sneak at my card that is a part of the sneak peak for the set Sea Side Life

Sea Shells up close-A

These are the Sea Shell on my card.  I wanted you to see a close up of these because when you see the entire card you may not see all of the detail.  I had fun putting this together.  I used masking to create this sea shell collection.  Only two of the shells were done separately….the rest are all on flat piece of paper.  OK are you ready to see the entire card????
