IO Challenge- Hello!

Today the Impression Obsession challenge is all about saying hello. I like hello cards because they allow you a lot of freedom. You can stamp just about anything, add the word hello and it works!

I have had the Beach Bottle (E2415) stamp for a while, but I have never used it. I wanted to make sure that I had a chance to use it before summer was over, so I knew it was going to be the image for my card. I stamped the bottle onto white paper with black Memento ink, colored it with Copic markers, cut it out, and layered it onto my card. I thought that my sand and sky needed a little more interest, so I stamped them both with the Cover a Card Canvas (CC073) and then edged them with Distress inks. Finally, I added a saying from the All Occasion I clear set (CL306).

Here is a close up of the bottle and the canvas background:
