This week at The House That Stamps Built we're sharing the Stamp of the Week - Mussel Shell. You can purchase this same image for 50% off this week only, so be sure to stop by The House That Stamps Built to get all the deets.
I stamped the image on GKD White twice and cut out each image. I added some VersaMagic Jumbo Java and PTI Vintage Cream to each shell. What's really difficult to see is I dry embossed the back side of each shell so they are totally raised except on the edges - they look so cool IRL. I cut each out and mounted on the sandy beach. The beach idea came from Michelle Zindorf - that chick can do brayering like none other!!!

The image was cut with a nestie and layered onto PTI's Fine Linen cut with a scalloped nestie. "Live for this moment" - great sentiment; NOW can someone transport me to a beach please? :D
