Sand Dollar Prayers

Happy Hump Day!

I've finally managed to do a little crafting, even with one hand in a brace with tenosynovitis.  It's a good thing it's my left hand, since I'm right-handed, it's not too awkward or painful.

Where has the summer gone, not to mention the year? Mine has been crazy with family commitments and I'm now back home for a good long while, hopefully, and trying to get back in my craft room regularly.  I mean Christmas is just four months away almost to the day!   

So with that said, here is a card I did for CAS Mix Up Challenge. Finally getting another chance to play in it.  I have new summer stamps/dies I haven't had a chance to play with so I'm extending my summer and possibly a lot of my fall cards will have a summer flare to them as well! 

Stamping - Sprays - Die Cuts - Wet Embossing

I started by using a Spellbinders Impressabilities, Sea Scape plate as a stencil over watercolor paper.  I sprayed Heidi Swapp Color Shine Coral and Pink onto the stencil and soaked up the excess.  In doing so, I got flecks of a light green as well as the pink and coral colors.  I cut a sand dollar die (Reverse Confetti) from watercolor paper sprayed with the same colors then added a vellum cut sand dollar on top with a sequin on top of a piece of white cardstock cut with a Spellbinder decorative edge die. The sentiment is from Stamplorations and was stamped in Versa mark and embossed in gold powder to finish off the card.

Stamping Blessings!
