Tasteful Backgrounds Dies with Seaside Notions

For today’s card, I knew I wanted to add a little pizzazz, so instead of a solid color peeking through, i decided to put designer paper behind the cut out of the Tasteful Background dies.  I love the way it looks, how about you?

As I was playing around with the die and various stamp sets to use, I thought the die looked a little like seashells, so I went for the Seaside Notions stamp set.  The inspiration for my color palette comes from the Woven Thread Designer Series Paper and the colors worked great with the stamped images.  I stamped the coral in Calypso Coral and colored it in with a Blender Pen.  The sea horse is stamped in Seaside Spray, colored with a Blender Pen and cut out with Paper Snips.  The shell is stamped in Crumb Cake and colored with an Aqua Painter for a softer shade.
