Is this cute or what? Does Tilda look like she is under water? That was the effect I was trying to achieve with the microfine glitter. I colored the image with my Copics and then did the covering. I kept the colors to teal, tan, and white with splashes of red, green, and yellow on the stamped image. The papers I chose to use were those, I thought, had a watery feel.

I don't know if the side shot gives you another view of the image. Maybe you can see how the image is so muted.
I had gotten this sand dollar stamp and thought I'd put it to good use on this card. I love, love, love sand dollars. Every summer, for 22 years, we'd head to the Oregon Coast for the summer. We were right on the beach. I'd get up every morning and be the first on the beach to gather up the sand dollars that would wash up over night. There were times when I found well over 100 in one morning! We have a garage full of them, LOL. Every year, I'd give each of my students a sand dollar at some point during the year. They loved getting them. I digress. OK, back to the card. I changed the border punch, added some shell embellishments, and a sentiment made with alpha stickers.
This is the completed inside. I added an area for a personal sentiment which I chose because it resembled a shell.
There you have it! You likey?
Thank you so much for stopping by! You are just the sweetest gals for taking the time! Come back again!
