Tuesday trigger:She sells seashells

Happy Friday. I made this one for Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger:She Sells Seashell. The moment I saw the photo, I know which stamp I want to use immediately. The sea shells in Hero Arts:Antique Engravings set are perfect for this project. I had hard time putting them together. This is my fourth try and I like the final result. Play along and there is time. You have until Sunday August 15 to submit your project.

I am inspired not only by the seashell bracelet but also the pink bottle in the back. I decide to add a bit pink. I want to keep the focal image as monochromatic as possible and just a little bit shine from the Stickle. Not too much cause I don't want the Gold over powder. Keep it under a soft tune.

Thanks for Stopping by.Have a nice weekend.
