A Birthday card for Catherine

Hello, how are you?
I have a lovely Birthday card to share with you today. It was another commission for a friend from a friend.

I was told the person in question likes the Beach and will often pick up shells as she walks along the water's edge. I have this gorgeous Just Rite Stamp called Sea Shell Bay Labels Twenty Two which I felt would be ideal. Plus I had some great inspiration for this card from Linda Lucas.

I used a few shells I had collected from a beach as well as those I made with the stamp set. I used a memento rich cocoa ink pad and a variety of "E" Copics, then some clear enamel on top to add dimension.

The net is actually a medical dressing from my first aid box that I added a variety of Tim Holtz blue and green distressed stains and inks to.

I also created the first letter of her name using Kaisercraft pale green rhinestones as well as dotting a few pearls on the page.

On the inside of the card I used a lovely sentiment, a few more shells and more of the medical net.

I really love the seahorse, so I re-stamped this a couple of times, stuck them together, coloured the top one and then added dimensional gloss enamel.

Here are the main ingredients that I used to make this card:
