Pen Pattern Shell

I have another sneak peek of a new stamp by Stampendous for you today!

This is Pen Pattern Shell and it's part of the new Pen Pattern series that Fran has developed.  These new images have lots of open space for you to doodle in.  You can also color them or paper piece them or do nearly anything you can come up with!

I colored the shell with copic markers and then went in with my black micro and doodled in all the open space.

The "Sand" was created with Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel.
I just randomly sprinkled it on the bottom of the card and heated it from underneath until it melted.

The senitment is Inspiration Exists from Stampendous.
