Nature's Calling or I just have the beach on the brain, hence this card.
I just got a new stamp set called One with Nature from Simon Says and wanted to play with it. Saw this challenge at Splitcoast and was off to ink up my paper and stamps.
I began by applying some Goosebumps to my watercolour paper. For those of you that are unfamiliar with Goosebumps, it is a clear liquid medium that you can use as a resist. I just splattered some onto my paper, let it dry and then added the blue. I did that by sprinkling some Brusho blues onto a non-stick craft sheet, sprayed with water then dragged my paper through the wet paint. I just love the effect it created with some of the white space still remaining.
While that was drying, I stamped the leaf outline and embossed it with white embossing powder. Then using the solid stamp from the set, I stamped using Mermaid Lagoon Distress ink over the embossing and cut it out. Stamped the sentiment from the set too.
Lastly, I scored a line top and bottom to define the inked piece.
Adding my card to these challenges:
Less is More- LIFE'S A BEACH
Seize the Birthday- ANYTHING GOES
Little Red Wagon- BEACH
Mixed Media- BLUE
(so of course I had to play!!)
Hope you had a great weekend...it just goes by too quickly!
