Sea Shells by the Sea Shore....

I have been loving my new stamps from Unity Stamp Company. This awesome shell is from the kit called "Beach Day" and the sentiment is from "Simple Pleasures".

I started with SU Vanilla and stamped 5 shells using the masking technique. I stamped them in Close to Cocoa ink. I colored using Prismacolor markers. I then stamped 3 more and colored them in but added diamond glitter, cut them out and adhered them to the top using pop dots. The "sand" is actually sandpaper. I added some brown ribbon from American Crafts and the sentiment is in Chocolate Chip and punched using a Marvy oval punch. Here is a close up of the glittery shells:


The other night I was up till after midnight finishing up my submissions for their DT call. I did get it in on time I think I had 4 minutes to spare! LOLOL! I'm glad I did even if I don't get it. Although, the call was for 1 person but today the owner posted that she will be taking on 8 new people!! My chance is a tad bit better now! So we shall see. The big reveal is on Thursday. Fingers crossed, it would be totally awesome to make this team.


That's it for now. I'm super tired and it's late again! I get so wrapped up! LOL!


Till Later....
