To make the card, I stamped the Impression Obsession sandcastle image (G1718) onto white cardstock using black Memento ink. When I held my Copic color chart up to the Twig Bazzill paper, the color I own that matched best was my W1 Warm Grey pen. I was a little surprised, but colored the castle and sand with my Warm Grey instead of a brown pen. I liked the end result! To embellish the card, I used some 1/2" Wonder Tape and adhered some real sand. The nice thing about Wonder Tape is that it is so strong that none of the sand escapes. Here is a close-up of the embellishment:
I have access to beach sand, but I tend to buy sand at a craft store when I want to add it to projects. The sand seems "cleaner," in that I don't have to pick out twigs, rocks, shells, etc out of it. Finally, I added a "sandcastle" woven label (Me and My Big Ideas) to the top. I have had that label for years and was so happy to finally use it!
Well, I should probably get back to work. I really want to do another challenge, so I will see if there is time after I prep for my class.
