Today’s little project is a sea scene created using crafty Individuals new stamps. I have lots more projects, using the new stamps, over on my card making blog HERE.
The base was an a page out of an old atlas pasted onto a piece of thick packaging board. You can just see some of the lines on the atlas pages behind the birds.
I base coated the piece with gesso and added some relief paste at the bottom to give the effect of waves. I then gave it another coat of gesso and painted it, with a sponge, with blue paints.
I added some paint patterns using stencil and toned them down a bit by removing some of the paint with a moist wet wipe.
When the paint was dry, I gave it a quick sand to highlight the paste patterns.
I stamped the birds with black ink but then didn’t like it to I painted over them with black paint.
I then stamped the script with a Archival Cornflower Blue Ink and stamped the postage marks with a grey Staz-On ink.
To finish off, I added some white paint splatters to give the effect of sea spray.
Thank you for looking.
Have a fabulous weekend.
