Curtin Call Inspiration Challenge - July 15 - Feeling Nautical

Happy Monday Everyone,
Today's card is for the new Curtin Call Inspiration Challenge - Feeling Nautical. I stamped the images and then masked them, brayered the background and then spritzed it with my Colour Spritzer Tool and Crumb Cake Marker.  I sponged in the shadows and coloured the images.  To create the foam on the waters edge I applied Crystal Effects and sprinkled Clear and White embossing powder intermittently and heated it with my Heat Tool.  The Heat Tool makes the Crystal Effects bubble and creates the look of the waters edge on the sand. 

Stamps: S/U's Lighthouse (R), Party Punch (R), Studio G VS4911 Series 14, My Favourite Things - By the Seashore
Card: Whisper White, Crumb Cake
Ink: Stazon Black, So Saffron, Crumb Cake, Pacific Point, Old Olive, Calypso Coral, Basic Grey, More Mustard, Daffodil Delight
Finishing Touches: Pearl
Cool Tools: Brayer, Colour Spritzer Tool, Heat Tool, Crystal Effects, Clear and White E/Powder, Aqua Painter, Masking Medium, Sponges, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Dble Sided Tape
