Sea Shell Phone - Whimsie Doodles July Release

Pin ItToday is New Release Day at Whimsie Doodles, and I am back today to share the card I gave you a little peek at yesterday. I used the NEW Sea Shell Leah to create this summery card.

To bring some emphasis on the shell, and to tie in the sentiment, I used the Spotlight Technique. Using a second copy of the main image, I only colored in the shell and a small part of Leah. Since I had printed the sentiment onto white cardstock, I used a COPIC marker to color the cardstock. I just love how easy it is to match cardstock, gems, etc. with those markers.

To see the full Whimsie Doodles release, you can check out the What's New page in the online store and today's Whimsie Doodles Blog post.
Just the details… (1) Used the spotlight technique on just part of the image, (2) Colored the sentiment banner with a blue COPIC to match coloring on sea shell, (3) Used foam adhesive between the layers for more dimension.
