I didn't get to...

...biggie size this one, but at least I have something new to show you.

This was a card I made at my mom's house over the 4th. You could say it was my own limited supply challenge. My mom has been buying stuff from me, but other than a few Christmas tags has yet to use it. I think she is a little intimidated, she's so cute!

Anyway, she had very little paper and a few markers, mostly Christmas colors. So I used what I could and spruced it up in other ways. I tore the edges of the certainly celery, then inked them up and glittered that part to make a sandy sort of look with the blue background. I stamped the shells in on white with black ink and colored the shadows of one with only orange (she got this to color the penguins beaks- LOL!) and the other with garden green. I then took a baby wipe with the only other ink pad she had- chocolate chip- got the brown on the wipe and when direct to the shell image to tone down the shells on the WW cardstock. I finished it off with some more glitter here. Behind the shells you can see the linen thread tied in a knot. Last but not least I stamped, so glad we are friends.

I left this card for my mom for three reasons, 1- she loves shells and the ocean, 2- I am glad we are friends, and 3- she asked! Silly woman, I would have left it for her anyway! :)
