PWCO blog hop!!!

Hi and Welcome to the July Paperworks Co. stamp release blog hop! 
we are so lucky to be showcasing a second set of stamp from Rachelle Anne Miller.  As always you can't even describe the cuteness of these images.  RAM is so so talented!  
If you've arrived here from Karen Lynn's blog then you're on the right track, if not make sure you start at the top of the list and make your way back here. 

Bella---you are here!
PWCO BLOG

Like always Peggy will be drawing random names from the commenters on the DTs blogs to win some of the stamps from this release.
Also there is a promo going on in the PWCO shop, 10% off all PWCO stamps, just use promo code
"PWCO stamps"
promo code valid until monday night, july 19th

So the stamp i get to showcase is called "Day at the beach"



and here's my card, it's very simple but i like it that way.  i put the coordinating sentiment on the inside of the card, it says: "Conquering the world one sandcastle at a time"

   
I cut out some clouds and a sun and sponged some ink around them.  i used a cork sheet for the sand.  i just tore strips and inked the edges in brown, i love the way it turned out! and i added shimmer, lots of shimmer.  first i used Smooch illuminate and put it everywhere the sunlight would hit; her hat, the sandcastly, the crab, all the seashells have a nice coat of it and the two birds.  I also spritz the whole card with iridescent gold glimmer mist, it's pretty subtle though, you have to hold the card in the sunlight to really see it.  check out the next pic to see the shimmer, the golden flecks look great on the "cork" sand.

Love the cork idea for sand, and what I love most is the way you create the sun, it is shining for the season. It is the summer time, our fellowship will host a gathering in Golden Ear Park, British Columbia. I wish we have the same sunshine as it is in this card.
