To start, I dry embossed Sizziz Tim Holltz Compass Texture Fade onto card stock. I painted it in random areas with white acrylic paint (stash) using a palette knife. Let that dry and used the palette knife to drag various Distress paints down, then misted a cloth with water and wiped areas to blend. Dried with a heat tool.
I knotted the cord with a nautical knot and glued this on.
I stamped the image from Stampin' Up Seaside Sketches in Archival ink on watercolor paper (stash) and painted with a water brush and Distress markers, which I smudged on my craft sheet. Dried with a heat tool and used Nestabilities dies to cut out. I die cut the mat, as well, from a scrap. Assembled and popped up with foam squares (stash) off the background.
I edged Tim Holtz Chit Chat stickers with Distress Ink and a blending tool and stuck them on. Added completed panel to a card blank.
And then in different light, but wanted to show closer detail.
I'm entering this into the following challenges: Simon Says Stamp Monday Paint Challenge, Paper Crafting Magic Challenge 12 In Summer, Craft Room Challenge Sun Sand and Surf, Mod Squad Challenge In Ocean Or On Sea, Unruly Paper Arts By the Sea Challenge, and Fantasy Stampers For the Boys Challenge.
