Design Team make for "My Time To Craft Challenge Blog" #400 "Seaside"
It's time for another challenge on the "My Time To Craft Challenge Blog" which has a theme of "Seaside" for challenge #400.
If you have a moment, please do pop across to the blog to see the other fab makes by my fellow Design Team members.
I decided to do something a bit different for this make by using lots of little bits and bobs I had floating around my work desk.
I had a piece of stamped card with a woodgrain effect, which I had given a grey wash to make it look like weathered wood, so decided to use that as a base.
I knew the colours that I wanted for the sea, so used Distress Oxide Inks in the shades of: Twisted Citron, Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, Broken China and Salty Ocean and roughly applied it to card, filling the white areas using a paint brush.
Once it was dry, I ran it through a Crafters Companion embossing folder which gave a nice wave look texture. I ran a clear embossing ink pad across the surface then covered with a white/silver embossing glitter so that the raised areas sparkle like the sun catching the raised waves, then heat set.
In my embellishment stash, I found a balsa wood sentiment saying "Sun, Shells & Sand" so decided to colour the sea weed and star fish using my Arteza brush pens and then added some Stickles glitter glue to give it a bit of sparkle.
I tore a piece of cardboard box to add a colour and texture like wet sand.
Finally, I assembled all the components and added little pearl like beads to the sand and small shells, I also added a handful of clear sequins to the card to give added sparkle.
