I started with a jumbo manila tag and the Tim Holtz bubble stencil. Picket Fence distress paint was stenciled on and dried. Then I sprayed it with a mix of Peacock Feathers and a dash of Evergreen Bough distress stains, followed by a very quick light mist of Vintage Photo (stains were transferred into Mini Misters for this step). Then the edges were inked with Vintage Photo DI.
The beach houses were stamped on book paper using Jet Black archival and then stained with Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberry and Mowed Lawn.
The Chevron Frameworks die was used to cut gray chipboard which was painted white with Picket Fence Distress Paint. I thought it made a cute be achy fence. Then I hung bronze sea inspired charms along my fence. When we are at the seaside, I always see fences with ocean/beach inspired objects hanging on them so I did the same my charms and my fence :)
The flower is just two layers of card stock, the smaller one was cut with the Jumbo Tattered Florals die and the larger one was cut with the Tattered Florals die. Both were stained with Squeezed Lemonade stain, crumpled, dried, spritzed with Biscotti Perfect Pearls and dried again. And, of course, I inked the edges with Vintage Photo. The pretty turquoise gem center for the flower is from my boutique.
I created a couple of bunches of sea oats using unraveled burlap fibers. The sentiment was stamped with Jet Black archival and the banners were hand cut. A bronze angel fish finished it off.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you will run over to Frilly and Funkie. The team has some great eye candy plus Donna Gibson is back for a quick guest design week. She has contributed an awesome vintage beach piece!
