Salt of the Ocean

Happy Sunday!  I am busy creating and playing with my sprays and inks.  I created this tag for the Mixed Media World Challenge #10 which is a color challenge this month and I am enamored of the colors and the Mixed Media Place Creative Exercise #15 - Freedom

I started with a mix of inks on my craft mat and spritzing them with water and then picking them up on my paper.  I then added a hint of script on the top with pumice stone ink.  I then stamped a Stampscapes ocean image along the bottom with black ink. I came back in with colored pencils to add additional colors.  I added the bird and the sentiment (Verses Rubber Stamps)  and then sponged the edges. 

Here is the inspiration photo: 

Have a lovely Sunday!
