Mama Elephant - Photo Inspiration Challenge

Here is the Mama Elephant's Photo Inspiration Challenge:

This photo gives me a beach and bottle idea, so I used the paper crane stamp in the Origami set to create a paper crane in a bottle beach scene. Below is the card I made:

First, I gold embossed the paper crane on white cardstock and colored it with water brush and Distress Ink pads, then cut it out. I hand drew a glass bottle on vellum and cut out, brushed some Pumice Stone ink on the edge of the bottle, then I cut another bottle on acetate (using the vellum bottle as the guide). I also cut a piece of cork paper to mimic the cork of the bottle. Second, I assembled them together with cork at the bottom, then vellum bottle, paper crane, and acetate bottle on the top. After that, I used water brush and Distress Ink pads to create the ocean and beach scene. I attached the foam dots on the back of the beach stripe to create a little dimension. Then, I stamped the text "sending smiles across the miles" (from Up and Away set) on top of the ocean. Last, I attached the bottle on the beach to finish the card. 

Here is a closer look of the paper crane:
