|Sea Themed card|
For the background I followed the technique shared by Tim Holtz in OCC -Watercolors using stencil with distress inks.I Used Peacock feathers distress ink with yellow water color.
Aren't these color refreshing..specially in Summers.It reminds me of beach holidays during summer vacation collecting shells,making sand castles or just having fun in waves !
Layered jute ,cheese cloth and packing net and then glued the shells on it.For the anchor I cut out the shape from thick cardboard and then applied ceramic powder + glue mixture on it and after it dried colored it and embellished it with beaded chain.

I made a co-ordinating box to hold the card.some color splats,dyed gauze,some shells n hand written sentiment to decorate it .
