I have had such a lovely time today getting all inky and messy. For the first time in ages I had time to have a trawl through my fav challenge sites and have a play at my craft desk, and here’s the result -
This is my fav sentiment stamp at the moment – courtesy of Tim Holtz, and I’ve teamed it with this Kanban lighthouse stamp, my thinking was that lighthouses guide ships through a storm ! I first created a ‘beachy’ background with distress stains, Distress inks, perfect pearls mist and Adirondack colour wash, and my own Distress re-inker spritz. I stamped shells with walnut stain DI and used my paper distresser round the edges. I stamped the lighthouse scene on tissue paper and used Ranger ‘glue N seal’ to blend it into the background before painting with DI and some white paint.
The sentiment is stamped on sticky back canvas, which I first coloured with distress stains then frayed before sticking onto contrasting card. The umbrella is shrink plastic, hand drawn and coloured with Pro-Markers.
I’m sharing in these challenges -
