Shells, Coral and a pink Sea Horse for the Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers

This week the Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers has a nautical dessert option. I am not sure whether this one is truly nautical, but it is definitely related to the sea. Click on the link to find out more about the challenge for this week.

Here are the colours for this week’s challenge ….

Blueberry Bushel, Lovely Lipstick, Coastal Cabana

… and here is my card


  • There is a lot going on with this card.
  • I have stamped the images on Shimmery White cardstock with Early Espresso ink and watercoloured with inks and an Aqua Painter before fussy cutting them all.
  • The Coastal Cabana frame was die cut and embossed with the Heirloom Frames Dies and 3D Embossing Folder, and then sponged with Coastal Cabana ink for extra depth.
  • The eye of the sea horse is a plain rhinestone coloured with a Basic Black Stampin’ Blend.
  • The shells, coral and sea horse have a coating of Shimmery Crystal Effects for added sparkle. The sea dollars, sea horse and coral only have small areas covered, whilst the other shells are fully covered with the Crystal Effects.
