Beachcomber



This weeks Challenge at Just Add Ink is Just add Embossing. I love embossing some of the ladies have been saying how when they first learned to emboss- they embossed everything gold- I still love embossing in gold- though I don't think I pop it on everything- anymore...
I've heavily embossed a wooden domino in gold and then stamped in Staz On with a small shell from the Seaside Set. Then I've added some hemp twine and a starfish charm ( non- SU). The background I brayered in Pacific Point and Not Quite Navy. Stamped the Starfish from Seaside, masked it and stamped over it with En Francais. I also added DSP- Haiku, Kraft Taffeta Ribbon and some distressing.
I mounted it on to Brilliant Blue- which is only with us for about 6 more weeks, as it's one of the retiring colours. Contact me for the complete list of Retiring Colours or to make your order before supplies run out.
