Wave-tossed Grand Spiral Shell
by Anne Thompson

This month's challenge is to use paint in some way and I just got a new box of Kuretake watercolors.  So...


I started with Memory Box watercolor paper, a cup of water, my favorite brushes, and the Kuretake watercolor paints.


I used the GRAND SPIRAL SHELL 94567 dies and cut the painted paper with the detailed shell design.  I then looked through the cardstock papers in the BERRY RED COLLECTION SP1001 and chose a color for cutting the solid shell.


My next step was to choose a piece of foil paper from the POLISHED FOIL PAD FP1001 and emboss it using the WAVES EMBOSSING FOLDER EF1013.    


To assemble the card

  • I added another paper from the Berry Red Collection cut to cover the front of a white notecard.
  • I used Scor-Tape to attach the foil waves paper which I had cut to 4 X 5 1/4.
  • I used a Glue Pen to bond the detailed shell outline to the solid piece and then secured it to the foil layer with more Scor-Tape.


These are the papers I used.

This card can be oriented as a side-fold or top-fold card.  And once I decide how to use it I can add a sentiment to the front or the inside.

And because I couldn't make just one...


I hope you love the new Under the Sea Collection as much as I do.  That Waves embossing folder!  All those beautiful shells!  Sea creatures!  And more!!!

Happy Crafting!
