I started with a piece of white card stock and stamped the starfish from the By the Sea in Brushed Pewter Distress Paint and then stamped the lighthouse and sentiment in jet black archival. Then the entire panel was sponged with Broken China and a bit of Salty Ocean, followed by edging with Vintage Photo distress ink. I also edged it with an embossing powder combination that I mix up - silver and UTEE.
I used my old Spellbinders rectangle and scalloped rectangle dies to cut a piece of light card stock to frame the photo, covered it with Picket Fence Distress Crackle Paint and when dry, lightly sponged it with Vintage Photo. I added a couple of small shells I picked up on the beach at Sanibel Island.
