Textured Beachy Card

 Are you ready to let go of summer? I am not! I had a great time getting creative with textures for @ABlogNamedHero! There is still time to enter our monthly challenge. The theme this month is textures!

I just purchased the Seashell Fancy Die and have been anxious to use them on a project! I started with the base layer of this A2 sized card.  The Starry Night Brushstroke background stamp reminds me of a windy day. White embossed and ink blended with Distress Ink Stormy Sky, it is perfect for a beach scene.

The water was created with texture paste and the Hero Arts Spiral Stencil. I only need half of the stencil to created the wavy seas. I tore the blue cardstock creating a rough border for the water.

The bottom layer is Hero Arts Sand Embossing powder on Kraft cardstock. I love the fun texture it creates!

You can't see it beneath the shells and sentiment, but I also tore the top edge of the sandy piece as well.

Next was the addition of the shells. I die cut the  shells from cream cardstock and edged them with the Stormy Sky Distress ink. I love the look it created.

Last step was to create the sentiment strip. The Let Love Shine sentiment from the Hand drawn Every Day Messages was embossed on a strip of vellum and torn to continue the rough edge look.
