In the Stamp Room, We Forget the Older Stamps
This card features a stamp set by PSX. Yes, I went that far back. Wood mounted. When I bought this stamp, I didn't know quite how to use it. It was before Copics, and I was still in my head trying to figure out color...do you get color with the color of ink pad, LOL. I struggled with that.
So for this card, I inked the three shell stamp from PSX with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto X-Press It cardstock. I added my own dotted sand across the card with a Memento Tuxedo Black marker because the image itself is not quite three inches wide. I colored the scene with Copic markers, added some Spectrum Noir Crystal Clear Sparkle and a few glass beads. A bit of white gel pen swirls tried to help the edge of the water. The sentiment was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black, also from the long-gone PSX.
