Groovy Starfish

I thought these seashells from the Shore Thoughts set from Lizzie Anne Designs would be fun in Groovy Guava.

I used a really simple layout for this one. A simple layout will make the background (shells) become the focus of the card. I stamped the shells (masking with a cut post-it note where they overlap) in Groovy Guava on Whisper White CS. Then I went back over each shell with a light wash of color (Groovy Guava) with an Aquapainter. It probably would have gone a little quicker using watercolor paper, but the color wash was an afterthought. If using any paper other than watercolor paper use water sparingly. The final touch was adding a little sparkle with a Stardust Gelly Roll pen.
