the heart desires beachy challenge - take two

Ahhh summer! And how about that touch of Wilted Violet ;)

I had to play along with The Heart Desires challenge #14, not only cuz I missed last month's but cuz it's the store's first anniversary so all the more reason to join the fun. Aren't their challenge mood boards gorgeous?

Well my first inclination was to pull out some digi papers and layer away. You can see my cards made with the papers in yesterday's post.

I had also watercolored some seashells with my Gansai Tambi but they didn't "work" with my digi paper cards, so I turned them into two additional cards. 

Stenciled some Distress Inks through ARTplorations Bubbles stencil then heat embossed Say it Big - Dream the Impossible.

The second seashell I'd given some touches of  ochre and violet, so I decided to let it shine all by itself on a card.

Stamped the image and sentiment from Beach Therapy, added some grungy dots in a nod to a sandy beach and then adhered the watercolored and fussy cut seashell.

Clean and simple. But kinda dreamy beachy, eh?

I'm playing at:

Craft Stamper - Take it Make it July
