One Crazy Stamper - Just Rite "By The Sea"

It's May 1st and that means it's time for a brand new challenge at One Crazy Stamper. Our theme all month long is "Boys and Men"!! So let's hear it for our men! C'mon... I can hear you groaning!! lol. It's not that hard ; )
Look at these great stamps that Lora carries from Just Rite Stamps called By the Sea:
I stamped this on 140lb. Cold pressed Watercolor paper with Staz-On in black. I then colored it with watercolors but after the fact really wish I would used Distress Inks.
Here's a close up:
You can find all kinds of glorious blue textured Bazzill cardstock here
I made this to give to my husband for our 27th Anniversary coming up next week so I parted with one of my beloved shells from the OBX (Outerbanks of North Carolina). The ocean is so rough there that most of the shells you find are just worn down to nothing but I still collect them because I think they make awesome pieces for jewelry after they're shined up. Here's a shot of that:
Ok, I think that's all there was to it besides the twine with a sailors knot. 
Don't forget, you have a chance to win a $25 Gift certificate
