My Favorite Card - At least at the moment



I'm not trying to toot my own horn.. but beep beep.  lol.  I really like how this card turned out.  There are slits in the sand where I put the seashell (left hand bottom corner) half in the sand then "popped" the top of it out so it looks like it's sticking out of the sand.  Did the same thing with the far right sand dollar.  The starfish in the lower right corner is "popped" in the center with the legs glued down, it actually looks like it's crawling out of the frame.  I am still practicing using the prisma pencils and with shading.. but I think everything turned our real nice on this.  I colored everthing except for the sky & sand. I did ink the sand and the waves for shadow & wet sand effects.   The sentiment is a stamp, which I love.  I used stickles on the waves and on the sand, looks like the water has just washed up.. and stickles for the "light bulb" in the lighthouse.  In person these things really stand out.  And I free handed the seagulls.  Anyways, I hope you enjoy it!  Thanks for looking.

I am amazed! Every time I see a new card I think it is the best ever - this one certainly is. Such detail and every bit looks like it belongs there. Nice job.
