TST #103 ...just because

It's Tuesday once again, and Jen has come up with another great sketch over at Try Stampin on Tuesday.

I know I did not follow the sketch completly but I wanted to change it up a little.  That is the joy of picking a sketch and running with what your gut thinks. 
I started with my DSP which was from My Mind's Eye, Everyday Tango.  The colours are a little harder to match up with regular cardstock, but I managed to find a light blue one that coordinated quite well with the DSP.  It is difficult to see from the colours in the picture but the DSP matched very well with Dusty Durango so I used that to stamp out the shells on the blue CS.  I added two small strips of blue again over the DSP and then using regular bakers twine I ran it over Marina Mist and the Dusty Durango to dirty it up and coordinate with the card colours. 
Once I stamped out the shells I trimmed them up and using a rounded stylis I shaped the shells to give them more dimension.
I hope you like what I have come up with.  Now hop on over to the Try Stampin site and see what the other Designers have in store for you.  Got enough inspiration?  Give the sketch a try and upload it so that we all can see your creation.
Thanks for stopping by.
Your  comments mean a lot to me, so please remember to leave one.


  1. Beautiful card. Great how you changed the sketch up a bit :) Love the colours and the twine embellishment you've used.

  2. This is the very first card I have seen with this set that I REALLY like--what a fabulous way of laying out those shells. Just stunning!

  3. Nancy, this is GORGEOUS! I ADORE the seashells and the coloring! The twine is totally fun, too! Sorry to be MIA last week! Life intervened, lol! :) HUGS!!!
