I am sure some of you have been thinking what happened, she posted everyday last week and then nothing for this week--I'm sorry and I apologize but now after reading about the Spellbinders Blog Frenzy you know what I have been up to. I have been busy playing with the NEW Pendant die templates and creating some really fun stuff that I will soon be able to share with all of you.

Ok, now for today's card, this is a card that I created for my Spellbinders DT tryout that I never got around to sharing with all of you. The weather has warmed up and this weekend is officially the beginning of summer so I thought a seaside card would be perfect to share.All of the cardstock is from WorldWin and all of the coloring was done using Copic sketch markers and the air brush system. I love how you can get very vibrant colors from Copic markers but also very soft colors and for this card I wanted to have the softer colors. The shell diecuts were made using the Wizard and the Shells S4-016 die template from Spellbinders. After I cut and embossed the shells I left the cardstock in the die template and used the template as a stencil and added the colors with airbrushing. I used the darker colors first and then I removed the cardstock and used a lighter color over the entire diecut. Is this not the most adorable image? I just love this stamped image of the little girl at the seaside. All of the stamped images and the sentiment are from Crafty Secrets Seaside stamp set. The image of the little girl was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink from Tsukineko and then colored in using Copic markers. To make the frame I used the Labels Four S4-190 and Classic Ovals Lg. S4-110 die templates from Spellbinders. The sentiment was stamped onto the diecuts made using the Deckled Rectangles Sm. S4-201 from Spellbinders. I also did some inking and distressing around the edges and added a few brown brads and some twill thread.
