Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Nautical/Ocean

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a project that has a nautical theme.

We've had a lot going on the last couple of weeks, in addition to working on lots of samples to share with you SOON for our upcoming stamp release - so I needed a quick and simple card for today's challenge. I took a Fabriano Medioevalis card and debossed the Shell dies into it, then spritzed the card with Smooch Spritz, and tapped it into some diluted Distress inks to add more color and interest. I brushed in a few places to let the color go down into the debossed lines.

The sentiment is one our new summer release images, available now! I thought these sandal charms were a cute touch.
Here's the card at an angle, so you can see the sheen of the spritz! So pretty.
