I started out with a piece of designer paper from basic grey as my background paper. But I applied gesso to it so now the pattern is barely there (it's the light, dark and black swirly things that you see.)
Next I held a chickenwire stencil over the paper and spritzed some dylusions over it (top corner). I tore some craft card stock, and some blue designer paper to create the "beach" on the bottom part. Stamped a tiny dots stamp over the kraft cardstock for a sandy impression.
Images have been colored using copics on xpress blending card and then fussy cut. The sentiment which is part of the Summer stamp kit has been cut apart and then adhered onto my card front. I layered the card front onto white card stock and then island indigo. I added a little bit of cheesecloth behind the white card stock.
Here is another view.
Would love to play along in these challenges:
Mixed Media Monthly (this is a brand new challenge blog which I was so happy to discover as I am pretty new to mixed media), their theme this month is spray inks - I used dylusions.
At Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge -the challenge is for the boys. I think this makes a great masculine card.
Outdoors is the challenge at Fussy and Fancy . At Penny's Paper-Crafty the theme is Bears or Mice (I used the cute Henry the mouse as my focal image). Masculine is the theme at Stampin' Royalty. And then at City Crafter Challenge this week's theme is Nautical.
Thanks so much for visiting!
I hope you'll have a fun-filled weekend with lots of sunshine!
