Starfish Wreath

Hello to Everyone!

Happy Summer to you!  I was blessed to just spend a week in the mountains and now look forward to a relaxing and crafty summer!  Here's to plenty of crafty time for everyone this summer!
Today's beachy card is made using the brand new Mermaid Kisses Stamp Set.  It is currently 15% off (through June 8th) as are all of the other new release stamps.

My background panel was made by dragging watercolor paper through distress inks that were smooshed onto my craft mat and then spritzed with water.  I dried after each 'drag' and then repeated the process, building up multiple layers of color.
I used the starfish from the Mermaid Kisses stamp set and stamped them in a circular fashion (I lightly traced a circle in pencil, then stamped the starfish, using the circle as my template).  I then fussy cut around the circle/wreath of starfish, on both the outside of the ring and the inside of the ring.  The starfish wreath was then brushed with Wink of Stella.
A piece of linen twine was wrapped around the starfish wreath and sequins added for more sparkle.
The sentiment, Together, was stamped in a teal ink and nested within the wreath.

If you are interested in purchasing products other than the new release stamps, you can get 10% all of the items with code TJ10LeeAnn!

That's it for me- I hope you find this easy card inspirational!
