Sea!

Here we are with the fast approaching weekend and I am ready for it! How about you? We will be going out for Super Bowl and that should be fun! Now I am doing a little DT duty using one of the New Release single stamps from Artistic Outpost, "Sound of the Sea." I just think this is adorable and dreamy and this is what I did. Being this is new and freshly inked :-), I am linking this over at Inspiration Journal's "Fresh Start."

I stamped the image in Black Archival, and wiped away the black in the netting and sea shell area and patted on some Sepia. When that was good and dry, using a water brush and Stampin Up markers of Bashful Blue for the "SEA," and her dress, Creamy Caramel her hair and the seashell she is holding, Blush Blossom for her skin. The ocean behind her and the land were colored using chalks. Shaded the edges with Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain. Once I was happy with the colors, I gave a it a spray of matte sealer to set. Matted on black and distressed the edges.

I stamped and cut a second set of Seashells to add a little dimension using Sepia Archival, watercolored and shaded in Walnut Stain and Black Soot as was the image and sentiment from "Boardwalk."  For the background, I stained a piece of cheesecloth using Antique Linen stain and Vintage Photo, tore off a little extra to wrap partially around the focal image. This was adhere using gel medium as were the little tiny seashells in the corner.


This is also being shared at Artistic Outpost, so if you would like to stop by for a visit, that would be lovely. There is also just a wee bit of time left to join in the January "Show Us Your AO Art." Thank you so much for visiting today and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
