The shells were heat embossed in white on most of these cards and ATC's.
I'll add additional notes to each of them for the coloring and final touches.
Final finishing touch on this one are the bladder red watercolor splatters.
This card was colored with distress inks.
I added stamped script for the final touch, and some red splatters, just to add a little extra color.
These ATC's were also sponged with distress inks.
Nothing fancy but very dramatic..
Stamped in brown this time..
the color was added with watercolor, watercolor pencils, and aqua markers,.
Added touches of white with an acrylic marker add highlights for more depth of course.
The (white) splatters as a final touch again.
...AND on all of them a scribbly border around the paper-distressed card front with a brown fineliner.
