I printed the digi 3 times and cut it apart and layered it. I sandwiched torn sandpaper (I had to dig it out of my shed) in between the layers. I added dazzling diamond glitter in some of the sand areas to make it look like the sun was shimmering on it.
The star fish and the shell on the right were colored with copics. I put a tiny bit of white glitter on the star fish and I brushed on some crystal laquer to the shell on the right. I wanted the shell in the back to have some texture so I colored it with colored pencils and then brushed on some "Scribbles" irridescent white mist mixed with a little Pearl Ex. which made it thick enough to give it a decent amount of texture. It's hard to see the color because of the reflection of the light on the irridescent paint.
I printed a small version of this digi on the inside of the card with reduced opacity. It's on the same DP as what was used on the front bottom. This is the sentiment that came with this digi set. I love it! It's perfect to go with these sweet shells. I used the border punch again on each side of the sentiment. And now I am excited about getting Deedee's cute little set called "God's Way". The sentiment is awesome and it has the most adorable looking little piggy with such a sweet face to go with it.
