Miracle

This card is done with a Stamps Happen stamp from Janlynn. First it was stamped on a card then the inside is cut out. Then the inner portion was stamped on a cream colored cardstock plus the one nautilus shell. Everything is colored with colored pencils. Portions of the see and sand are painted with a mixture of pearl ex and gum arabic. The nautilus shell is mounted with foam tape. Little dots of the pearl ex mixture are applied over the card. A organza ribbon is place around the bottom of the card. This is for a color challenge using only muted colors.
