Shellabrate!!!

I had such fun making this card! I am in love with sea turtles, anytime I travel and the city has an aquarium I have to go only to see the sea turtles! So when I saw this set by Waffle Flower on the Butterfly Reflections on-line shop I had to have it for me!


I started with a piece of Strathmore Bristol paper and used a mix of Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans with some masks that I freehand cut to make my waves.  I sprayed the paper with my Distress Sprayer, once that dried I took a Tim Holtz/Sizzix Stencil (Dot Fade) and added a bit of Nuovo Tanzanite Glitter Paste (LOVE that stuff!). The Tanzanite has a mix of blue and lavender glitter, so pretty! I then stamped and coloured my sea turtles with my Copics. I wanted a shaker card so I stamped my sentiment on the Acetate using my StaZon white and I used my Misiti to be able to re-stamp for the best impression.  

The outer frame is by MFT and I cut it from MFT Lavender Glitter paper. I used many different sequins in blue, lavender and clear.

Thanks so much for taking the time!
