I had used the Inkylicious shell stencil with a Distress Oxide ink for a previous project, but while cleaning the stencil with a wet wipe, I had a piece of card below, the colour on the stencil transferred onto the white card giving a lovely shell pink colour. This was too pretty not to use. As I needed to make a congratulations card, I thought this would be ideal as the main feature.
I stamped the Spellbinders (STP-004) in a brown Versafine Clair ink called "Acorn". Then mounted the cut down image onto brown and then a similar coral shade of card.
Finally, using a Sakura Gelly Roll Pen in a soft glittery gold shade, I went around all the edges of the shell image. It doesn't show up very well on the flat photograph, so I took a little video to show it to you.
