Umbrella Girl

I'm back with a card I made for the recent Boardwalk release at Artistic Outpost.  This set is so versatile and so much fun to create with.  So many possibilities...here I stamped the umbrella girl and then masked her to then stamp the ATC sized plate of the Steel Pier.  I love the vintage photo feel this has created with the girl in the foreground and then buildings behind.  I matted her on a piece of corrugated cardboard, then matted again with a piece of designer paper with a beach umbrella pattern, cut with the Tim Holtz postage stamp die.   I hand cut the sentiment banner, stamped second generation shell images and heat embossed the sentiment over them.  For the end shells, I stamped them with jet black archival, trimmed them out and then colored them with the Tattered Rose distress marker.  Then I coated them with glossy accents to make nice shiny shells.  The post card texture fade was used to created a textured background.  

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Love her masked against the Pier building, and those shells look so cool!
