This is where I left it on the last post. As a quick recap I have blended DI Pine Needles, Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire and then stamped with white acrylic paint. The stamp I used is Great Impressions E391. I started this tag wanting it to be a sea scene which suited the sentiment on the stamp perfectly.
I stamped the same sentiment on white card using DI Walnut Stain and then tore around it. I blended Salty Ocean and Mowed Lawn, edged with Walnut Stain and then spritzed with water. I dried it and then stamped using DI Dusty Concord and the small shell stamp from PaperArtsy Lynne Perrella Collection 001. These arrived yesterday and I was so keen to try them out. Fab stamps. Thanks PaperArtsy. They also changed this project because my original plan was to do some sort of sinking ship and a lighthouse and something else maybe. Well, I've still got the lighthouse............
I stamped the Lady With the Ship on her Head. Mrs Neptune maybe? I have admired Lynne Perrella's stamps for a long time but these are the first ones I have used. They are so beautifully detailed and I love the quirky designs. This one perfectly fitted the sentiment and my theme. The lighthouse was a sticky rubdown. My original idea was to use Beadazzle beads but it was too coarse to stick so I used white flock. This didn't show up against the background so I did a little experiment with Dusty Concord. I quite like how it looks foggy.
The tie is a piece of torn cotton fabric coloured with Salty Ocean. I washed it slightly to react the ink and also so when I screwed it up it would hold the creases. I dried it till it was damp and then stamped using the small shell stamp again with DI Dusty Concord and then used the True North stamp with Walnut Stain. I attached it using a polka dot brad.
I am entering this for
PaperArtsy - Welcome Back Linda Cain I was intending to try a different technique as demonstrated by Linda but I haven't got my canvas fnished so I thought I'd share another tag. The same but different.......
Thanks for visiting. Take care, keep warm, be crafty.
