Holiday by the Sea

Greetings to you all, I hope you are well.
Today is a non-descript kind of day here in Rhyl, North Wales so it is perfect for crafting!!
I decided it was time for a break from Christmas preparation today so my card is beach and holiday related rather than anything to do with Christmas!

I like shaker cards and my friend recently did a shaker picture so I felt inspired to do my own shaker card!  Using sand from practically on my doorstep, I give you this summer scene to bring back some good memories :)

I used:
Beach scene stamp by Impression Obsession
Cocoa Memento Ink
Tattered Lace Fishing related dies
Brilliance Gold Ink
Distress inks in: Gathered Twigs, Rusty Hinge, Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass and Chipped Sapphire
Blue Card, Brown Card and shell charms from my stash!

The brilliance Gold was put onto the die cuts first and then light dustings of the various distress inks applied to give a multi tonal effect that alters as you move it in the light.

I hope you like this card-I had a lot of fun creating it :)
