As many of you may already know, Sparkle N Sprinkle is closing her doors. This will be my final post for Margaret and the Company. For my card today I'm working with the beautiful Nature of the Beach Set 929 and a left over piece of netting (which I got from a neighbor to make a special shaker for my bees!)
When I was using it for what I needed for the bees, I immediately thought of fishing netting and how it would work with the shell set. I partially heat set it in to super thick embossing powder, Blue Bird (EP471).
These ultra thicks should be heated from the bottom to prevent them from flying off the cardstock. Laying the netting on the top of the white cardstock, adding the embossing powder and gently heating it from the bottom. Once it starts melting you can apply a little heat to the top which will melt the netting and make it look distressed. I then applied Frosted Lawn (EP475) to add in some green.
The shells were then stamped with Versafine Clair Acorn using the stamping platform.
The Cheery Lynne die was cut from black cardstock and then the sentiment from the set was stamped in Versamark (after the piece was wiped with the anti-static bag). This was then heat set with White Detail (EP198).
Everything was then assembled. The white card front was attached to a black card base. The shells, turtle and sentiment were attached with mounting foam for dimension and then the Nuvo Drops Apple Green and Dazzling Blue were applied randomly around the card front.
Below is a list of the products that I used today. There is a closing down sale going on right now that you may wish to take advantage of. Many of these products may still be available.
