A Trip to the Beach
I started my background with a bubble technique shown on a previous blog. I outlined the tag with distress ink tumbled glass. I had a pack of Little Shells by Hero Arts from 2002 which I glued onto the lower part of the tag. I stamped the shells with Ranger archival ink (jet black) and used distress inks ( scattered straw and tea dye). Some of the shells are mounted on foam to create some depth.
I stamped a bucket by Judith M-27 from Stamp Addicts in distress ink festive berries and used a bit of netting to represent a fisherman's net and the words " Sea" and "Sand" out of Scrabble letters. I put a brad that looks like the Sun in the top right hand corner. Finally I dyed a ribbon using ditress stain broken china.
This project reminds me of all the times we took our three children to the sea side with their buckets and spades, happy times!
This project is for Simon Says Stamp and Show ... A Summer Holiday!
