Embossed Shell Card
I seem to be in a less is more mood this week, because here is another less is more card. I started with this Anna Griffin brass stencil, and embossed it onto off white paper on my light table. Then I decided it might be pretty to do the borders with a gold metallic pen. After I did that, the shells disappeared, so I decided to do the little solid parts of the spiral shell, and the two solid parts of the top shell. That made the rest of the shells disappear! That is when I decided just to outline the rest. I didn't want to do the whole thing with a solid color because the border is so light. Anyway, I like how it came out.
Next, I matted the embossed and stenciled layer with gold mirror card, a wide border of some Anna Griffin paper and another layer of mirror card, then mounted it onto an off white card. Last, I added gold outline stickers and Liquid Pearls.
