By the Seashore in Neutrals

This card is for the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches and the color challenge at Colour Me Beautiful.  Combining these challenges immediately sent me down the path of a masculine card.  I pulled out the By the Seashore set and went to work.  The only color I didn't use from the challenge was Basic Gray.


After I stamped the various images, I ran over the top of the images with my Aqua Painter, which blended the ink color.  The fourth image was cut out and popped up on dimensionals.  (Can you tell by my vague descriptions I don't know the names of shells and sealife-y things?  I am so not a nature person LOL).

I finished off the card with linen thread, one of the gorgeous bronze buttons and a couple of little tags.



Thanks for looking.

Products used (all Stampin' Up!):

Stamps:  By the Seashore; Tiny Tags
Cardstock:  Sahara Sand; Early Espresso; River Rock; Neutrals DSP
Ink:  Soft Suede
Accessories:  Linen Thread; Bronze Button; Jewellery Tag Punch

Cheers
Karren

Beautiful card, Karren! I have avoided this sketch as it seems rather daunting, but yours is wonderful!

You've combined the sketch and colours so well and your card still looks fresh and clean as well as suitably masculine. Thanks for joining us at Color Me Beautiful.
