Here's another nice picture from my page-a-day calendar. I love the green in the water! I cut a variety of scalloped circles to mimic the edge of the shell and then ran them through the Cuttlebug for a pattern to mimic the waves. A border of golden cardstock frames the illustration and three silk flowers, colored with alcohol inks, have tiny button brad centers. All elements are mounted in a series of 3D stages.
The stitching is hand drawn with watercolor marker and then shaded with a different tone to add depth. The text strip is a cardstock sticker.
