Summer Shells

I love this set by Unity Stamp Company called A Beach Day. It is so perfect for the summer cardmaking and scrapbooking alike. I decided to use my fun new foil pen and foils by Bo-Nash on these shells. I love how it came out all shiny, then I colored in with Prismacolor markers. The sentiment relax is also by Unity and is from the Simple Pleasures Kit.

This is a frame/photo album I picked up when I went to a stamp convention, I actually picked it up at a discount store on the way! LOL! I covered it in some paper by Cosmo Cricket, then just added my shells and sentiment. Very simple. The photo I took when we went to the Bahamas a few years ago.

Here is a close up of the shell and the awesome foiling. I love the shine!

Well off I go now.

Till Later....
