First thing to do after I had arrived home from our holidays was to order a stamp set (at least one!) and some new colours ;)
There were a few on my personal wish list, but I found something new to my eyes: the lovely sea life stamp set from Artemio!
So of course I had to try it out at once!
This is the result:
Having found some weathered wood during our lovely holiday stay near the forests, the mountains and the lakeside, I felt I had to use it for a maritime themed project. The new "walnut stain" ink pad had to be broken in too! And of course the Maya Mist "Espresso Brown" I had decided to give a try.
For embellishments I chose to do three pendants fixed with rough cord - one was to be the small wood piece with the hole, and the others two stamped shells from the stamp set. I glued the cord between two paper layers of same size and shape. But first I stamped the backs of the shell size scraps with my favourite Tim Holtz script stamp, in the occasion they would turn over.
The edges of the tag were distressed with the blade edge of my carpet knife and inked with dark blue. As a finish I sprayed with Glimmer Mist "Moonlight" and Maya Mist "Espresso Brown".
Hope you like my trip to the seaside! Hugs, die amelie xx
I entered this project to Craft a Scene's actual challenge "The great Outdoors" and to The Artistic Stampers Challenge "Holidays".
