Nature walk

With the early morning light bathing everything in a soft glow, Molly set off along the woodland path, enjoying the sunbeams slanting through the gently swaying leaves. At the top of the cliffs, a single perfect feather lay across the path, pointing to the beach. Smiling quietly, Molly followed its suggestion, snaking through the dunes. High tide had left a jumble of shells on the sand, each glistening with highlights of gold as the sun climbed higher in the sky. 

Molly’s nature walk was prompted by the current challenge at Let’s Squash It - use at least three embossing folders and a person. She enjoyed the peace and quiet, just the sounds of surf and gulls!

For some reason the Pumice Stone ink has come out looking rather blotchy in the photo, it’s much smoother in real life, honest!

Stamps:
Molly (Beeswax Stamps)
Landscape sentiments (HobbyCraft)

Paper:
Bristol board
Strathmore toned grey

Ink:
Hero Arts Shadow ink (Soft Granite)
Tim Holtz Distress ink by Ranger (Pumice Stone)
Versafine by Tsukineko (Onyx Black)

Other:
Fallen Leaves embossing folder (Sizzix)
Shell Beauty embossing folder (Spellbinder)
Feather Duo die/embossing folder (Tim Holtz/Sizzix)
Tomato paste tube 
Enchanted gold wax (Cosmic Shimmer)
