This is my card using this marvelous set. Last week I had a dream about it. (That is when you know that stamping and card making take up a big part of your life when you dream about them.) I pictured a polaroid photo that someone might have taken on their vacation before digital photos. :) (So I was thinking old people like me!!) I stamped the shells and colored them by watercoloring. I cut them out and used porcelain paper technique on them. I also shaped and curved them so that they resembled real shells. The background was brown paper that I crinkled up and distressed the edges to make it look like an old treasure map. I doodled around the edges and made that "X" all treasure maps have. I added raffia to look like grass that might be growing along the shore and I added twine with a figure 8 knot. I made this masculine card as a thank you note for my sons' boy scout leader. He took them camping this last weekend and had to put up with a lot with high temperatures, high humidity and rain in the tents... I really appreciate all that the voluteers with boy scouts do!! They are amazing!
