Happy Place ATC

     The beach has always been my happy place, as shown on my latest ATC! I still have high hopes of living there one of these days, even though it's not likely. Lol! 

     I started by covering a regular playing card with white gesso. After drying, I stamped the waves with Archival Jet Black Ink, using the Bye Bye Stamp from Emerald Creek. Then I heat embossed the colors, starting on top with Aegean Sea, Dusk, and Lime Baked Velvets. The white on the waves was done with a Versamark Pen and Soft Fallen Snow Embossing Powder, also used over the twine. It made a pretty cool effect on one of the waves, and almost looks like a splash. A mermaid perhaps?

     The sand was stamped and embossed using Dirty Sand Baked Texture. Then I embossed the sentiment onto a piece of vellum with Onyx Frost EP, and finished it up with some shells. 

     Thanks for looking!
