Dictionary Challenge - S
This fortnight's letter for the Craft Barn dictionary challenge is S with the added twist that the page has to have a shell. I have to confess that I was not thrilled with the twist because of all the S words in the dictionary I really did not want to do a sun/sea/sand themed page. I debated making a background with some random shells stamped into it but then I thought of the word 'surf' and a very old Rusty Pickle stamp set that could do with some inking again. The background is a mix of Gelatos and DIs and I did some double and triple embossing to ensure the surfboards looked waxed to perfection. The 'surf' is a lot clearer IRL and was achieved with WOW white puff twinkle embossing powder. I had a pot of tiny shells from which I selected a few to scatter in the sand.
So that's it for this fortnight. If I had had more time I might have attempted something a bit more off beat but... onwards and upwards as they say.
