Boardwalk!

Hope you all are having a wonderful start to the week and enjoying the Summer! Yes, it is still hot here and this weather sure makes you think how nice it would be to live at the beach! The current challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges is "Mail Time" and there are still a few days left to join in for a chance to win a gift voucher from Flonzcraft or make the Top Three!  My DT Sisters have nailed "Mail Time" with some fabulous art, so stop by and have a look!
And speaking of the beach, I once again pulled out my Boardwalk stamps from Artistic Outpost for my Mail Time theme and it will actually be mailed!  I started by creating an inky background, a little stenciling, Spritz and Flick and subtle stamping of the little seashell.  The gentleman bather was first stamped and cut out! I did first mask, but managed when all was done to get some blue ink on his face! So not cool!
All main images were stamped using Sepia Archival and some were clear embossed. The Atlantic City was watered colored using markers and Distress Inks.  Such summer fun!
Will be linking this us to Lisa's Bloggers Challenge, "Create Your Own Background" and Simon Says Stamp and Show. "A Little Stamping."
I am so happy that you stopped by today and thank you for taking the time to comment! Enjoy the rest of the week!

Distress Inks: Stormy Sky, Peacock Feathers, Broken China, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain
Distress Markers: Tattered Rose, Tea Dye, Wild Honey, Broken China, Stormy Sky, Antique Linen
Distress Stains: Wild Honey, Broken China, Stormy Sky, Peeled Paint, Rusty Hinge, Vintage Photo

Everytime I see the boardwalk stamps the song fills my head and I dream of being back in Santa Barbara, oooh I wish lol.
Love the gorgeous sea greens and the fabulous images. The muslin or gauze tie looks amazing, perfect for the theme.
