The sea was my first thought - I have missed it so much this last year, not a trace of sand between my toes. So I was glad to snatch enough time to make a second card. I stamped the image on watercolour paper and coloured with Inktense pencils and distress inks. All the surf has Stickles on it, and I also edged the piece with Stickles.
For the base, I used Stencil Embossing. Inked the stencil with salvaged patina DOX. The sandwich that works for me in my Big Shot Plus is Adapter A, a plate, a sheet of felt, paper, the stencil, then the top plate. This too was edged with Stickles. I swiped some cheesecloth with Antique Linen to help it show a bit more, and added a starfish (shimmering with SN clear glitter pen), a shell cut from watercolour paper and sponged with distress inks after embossing, and a sentiment.

My head went straight to the beach too, but I always do beach cards, so I went in a different direction. Your beach card is gorgeous! I love the gold Stickles edges. Nobody should ever have to go a whole year without the beach :0(
