I am headed out of town tomorrow- needing to spend some time with my parents as my mother is still on the mend. I did play a bit today with some mixed media goodies, inspired by both the Curtain Call Challenge and Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, 'Paste'.
As I am heading for Florida, this seemed quite the appropriate card! I will probably send this to my mother when I get back from visiting them.
I really loved the inspiration photo from Curtain Call and was inspired by the angle of the photo more than anything. I really did not succeed in creating that angle, but, I do like how it turned out, considering I am NOT in any way, shape or form a mixed media gal.
I also wanted to play with water coloring some more, as I feel like a novice in that area. I think part of my problem is I am too impatient to wait for things to dry! So, I water colored the sky, sea and sand. I went over the sky and the sea a few times. I added white embossing paste at the shore line to mimic sea foam and spray. Then I mixed some brown inks with some embossing paste to make the sand. I should note that I pounced on the embossing paste with a firm bristle brush to give it the texture. The sea foam, once dry, was colored over with white acrylic paint- a tooth brush was used to apply it.
My starfish (Sweet n Sassy Stamps) was colored with Copics and fussy cut out. The sentiment is a brand new one from Kraftin' Kimmie and the birds are from a Craft Lounge set.
Thanks it for me!
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed day!
