By the Sea

Linda here with a very short post as I am heading out of town for the weekend.  This piece was created on a jumbo manila tag using the Beyond the Sea plate.  I did a little distress stain marbling with Faded Jeans and Tarnished Brass distress stains.  The stamping was all done with Jet Black archival.  I wanted to add a rough sandy touch so I embossed the black CS ornate frame die cut with Antique Linen distress embossing powder in a very random manner.  The conch shell was stamped with Jet Black archival and colored with Spun Sugar and Tattered Rose distress markers and then coated with Glossy Accents.  The little banners were cut with the Ribbon Flags decorative strip die.  

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Such a pretty tag - the shells make a wonderful border, and I love that woman.
