Sketch Challenge 585 | Let’s Shell-ebrate

When working with sketch challenges I try think out of the box. Working with sketch challenge 585 I really had to think. I did try another one before settling on this one. When seeing the challenge my first thought went to bubbles or balloons but I felt that was so on the nose. After playing a bit I decided to go with squares that was falling. And into those squares I stamped some of the creatures from the Island Shell-ebrations Stamp Set.

When it come to the card base I decided that it would be fun to make it look like sand. So I grabbed a sheet of kraft card stock and made a card base out of that. But I wanted some more texture and decided to splatter some white gesso, some kraft ink and finally some golden watercolor. For my sentiment I used the kraft card stock just plain and then I stamped the sentiment with some Vintage Timber Ink as I wanted the sentiment to have a little more darkness than kraft on kraft. After attaching my squares I felt they needed something extra to stand out, and as I love white gel pen on craft I draw some scribbles around the images. And that is the card! How did you like it?
