Using The Sea

Cathy is today's Ways To Use It challenge hostess and she has chosen "Sea Worthy" as our theme.  For my sea worthy creation, I chose the sand dollar.  I love this image and the sentiment. I did a lot of sponging and masking to create my sand and sea.  It also helped that one of the sets that I used had a sand stamp.  I used three different colors of ink to get my sand just so.  

I think it might be hard to tell from this angle, but I did round out my sand dollar.  I turned it upside down on a foam pad and used the rounded end of a pen cap like a stylus.  Moving in an elliptical fashion I created the "hump" where the pearl is on the sand dollar.  

Thanks for looking!
