Color Challenge

Here is a card I made with "Gifts from the Sea" for Tina's Color Challenge on STV, using Black, White and Gray. I may have taken a teensy liberty with my "gray": this is Soft Sand, grayer and softer than Kraft, just a fabulous neutral! I started out with Nina's label, thinking how pretty the stripes would be to frame up the scallop, nestled into these curling flourishes like waves on the beach. It maake this little shell the star of the show, perect with the quote... I added pearls to the top and bottom after die cutting the labels with Labels Four, then popped up the Copic shaded shell on top. Voila! Pretty simple.

If you play along, be sure to upload you creation to STV with the tag STVCCTG11.

Thanks for looking, thank you for the challenge Tina! :)

ELEGANT!! This image has gotten me completely distracted from what I sat down to accomplish but I am so glad it did. I love your new stamps and the quotes bring tears to my eyes! I would live in a little grass shack if I could convince my family.
