Vintage Shells Card

Time for another challenge over at Creative Cutting Challenge.  
This fortnight's theme is:  SUMMER...my favorite season!
And since I love the beach, I decided to create a vintage style card that features shell embellishments I created using this file:
I changed the file a bit to create stencils, which I cut from acetate.
Using Distress Inks, I pounced on the colors over the stencil on to kraft paper.
Once all the coloring was done, I fussy cut out the three shells.
These were then added to the stamped, colored and matted image that was the feature of the card.
