The Fashionable Stamping Challenge is all about nautical. I knew the new Artistic Outpost quotable from Louisa May Alcott was the perfect quote to use for this challenge.
Quote and Quotables plate.
I pulled out the lovely Beyond the Sea plate and some fishnet to coordinate with the sentiment. The background is a glimmer misted sprayed over fishnet on white cardstock. Stamp the music using brown ink over the misted background. Sponge edges with brown dye ink.
The lighthouse was stamped using black ink and colored with watercolor pencils and an aqua brush. There was sponging of the dye ink over the background. I added the ship in the background from the Huck Finn plate.
I do think I went a little overboard with the birds. LOL! But once I started I had to balance them out! :)
I also wanted to share that Stampendous and Dreamweaver will be sharing fantastic projects all week. Go and visit the Stampendous and Dreamweaver blogs to find out which design team members will be sharing projects each day this week finishing up with a big blog hop on Saturday! Of course there are fun prizes in addition to inspiration! I will be sharing my creations later this week and during the wonderful blog hop. I haven't tried the stencils & paste before and had a lot of fun playing with them.
Have a lovely day!
