Summer by the Sea - Couple

Summer by the Sea stamp set by Stamping Up was used to stamp the couple sketch and the sentiment both stamped with brocade blue ink.
I also used a spriral punch to create the the notebook edge.
This is the first in a set of 3 cards that I have planned
I stamped the white base card with a dandilion stamp in the blue ink then cut a smaller blue square and used the swiss dots embossing folder and ran it through the Cuttlebug using a white ink pad I swiped it over the embossed dots then distressed the edges of the blue square.
Using the blue ink I watercoloured the image and layered it all together before adding the flower decorated with crushed glass glitter.

I used 3 Sakura Flower Punches by Carla and added crushed glass glitter to the edges before layering them on top of each other.
