Lobster Trap...

Evening everyone,
Its been a beautiful sunny and warm day here. The strong winds of the last few days seem to have died down,and its been nice to get back in the garden and continue with a good tidy up. Hope everyone has had a nice weekend..
The card I am sharing today is an 8x8 easel shaped card.The pretty image is from Prarie Fairy Designs and is called ' Lobster Trap '. I  have coloured it using watercolour pencils and chalks for the background. I have distressed the edges of the card and the yellow design paper with a brown ink pad and a sponge.The image is mounted onto gold mirri card .I have used a selection of different coloured , brown card stock, which is also mounted onto gold mirri card. The card candi has been tinted over with a brown promarker, to give them a 'rusty' feel.l used a scalloped nesti and natural twine and the shells are some that l have collected from my wonderful holidays in the US. These particular ones are from St Pete's in Florida, happy days !
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges...
Wishing you all a nice evening ...Hugs Susan x
