Addicted to CAS - Seaside

It has been a lovely week weather wise...looking forward to the spring!  But not sure we are quite there yet!  Anyhoo, this week's theme at Addicted to CAS will get you into the spring mood...our theme is Seaside.

I had a bunch of fun ideas for this challenge, and wanted to use my newest dies, so I ended up with this one...

I started by stamping my images and coloring them with copic markers.  I then sponged my background with distressed inks.  I found that sponging works like magic on Bristol paper, so that is my go to paper for all things sponging! I then stamped some seashells on the Kraft stock with distressed ink.  I stamped them with Antique Linen which is a bit light, next time I'd use a darker shade.

Here's a close up of the card.  You can see the sea shells on the Kraft card stock just a bit.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with...remember there is a great prize for the winner!
