With Sympathy -vertical and horizontal

I made two cards using a stamp from Impression Obsession called Shell Collage. It was one of the first stamps I purchased, however, I never used it until today. I made two copies. I first coloured them with Copics, then aged them with some distress ink. For one, I cut and framed the stamp with a matching cardstock. The other I cut out irregularly then distressed the edges. I used 3D Shell embossing folder by Spellbinders, sentiments from Verve Stamps, twine, and pearls.

    Both are just stunning but I like the one you added for ATSM best, the added twine fits perfectly with your theme and the distressed edges I always love to see x
