Thin Cuts Blog Hop

Welcome to the Thin Cuts Blog Hop. We're the same group that does the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop and just love to share a special hop each month as well.

I just knew the seashell Thin Cuts would be the perfect match for this photo so I got out my watercolor paper and got to work! I heat embossed the seashells in white and used a watercolor wash to color them. I also used a watercolor wash to make the word happy. I just washed some color onto the watercolor paper then used the happy Thin Cut on top of that area and you've got a fancy colorful sentiment! The bottom of the page is supposed to look like waves lapping the beach. I tore the edge off pieces of cardstock to let the white core show and layered them on top of each other. A few sparkles on the sea shells and it was finished!
