SEA SHELLS WITH SUNNY STENCIL MASHUP

 


Hello, again, Stampers!

    Still playing with my stencils stash.  The stencil is called Sphere (Altenew).  I applied the color with blending brushes and sponges.  At the bottom is Crumb Cake, then Coastal Cabana as dark as I could get it, then I lightened up a little.  After that is Daffodil Delight and ultimately, Mango Melody.

SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW - PLAYING WITH SOMETHING NOT SU!


Ahoy, Stampers!
     Some time ago, I saw an image similar to this on Sarah G.'s blog at Funky Fossil Design's (UK).  I thought the design was so unique I just had to try something similar with SU! stamps.  FFD, a UK shop, designs and sells mostly stencils.
     I used stamps from three separate SU! sets, one of which is retired:  Wherever You Go (retired), High Tide and Sailing Home, in the new Annual Catalog.  The sailboat and birds in the water drop on both cards, if you want to call it that, is from Sailing Home, the compass, GO sentiment and single bird on the blue card are from Wherever You Go.  On the aqua card, the sentiment is from Sailing Home and the birds at the bottom are from High Tide.
     I used Distress Inks with two stencils: Lightbulb Aperture over Messy Rainbows.

WATER, WATER EVERYWHERE.... STAMPIN' UP! SAILING HOME, A LITTLE BRUSHO "ART PIECE"

Hi, Stampers!
    Playing around again with this easy brushing Brusho technique (see my May 4 post).  This time I added some extra water droplets from my Aqua Painter for a little more interest.  Don't be afraid to experiment - try it, you'll love it!


Happy Stampin’!

Details
     The base is a vertical A2 card of Whisper White Thick CS, and the mat layer is also WW Thick, cut with the largest of the Stitched Rectangle dies. My "art piece" is 2-3/4 x 3-3/4 Watercolor Paper.
     I sprinkled Prussian Blue and Yellow Brusho onto the Watercolor Paper and spritzed with water and brushed it with my Aqua Painter, blending the colors a little in the middle.  I then added droplets of water from my Aqua Painter here and there, dabbed off a little excess with a napkin, and let dry.
     The sailboat and birds are stamped in Night of Navy, using my Stamparatus, in case I had to re-stamp.  When I made sure the stamped images were dry, I attached the watercolored layer to the Stitched Rectangle piece with Fast Fuse all the way around the outside and a few stripes in the middle, to be sure it would lay flat.  The "stitched mat" is attached to the card front with Foam Adhesive Strips.
    I  left room for a sentiment if I decide to add one down the road.   I stamped the smaller sailboat on the inside of the card, and done!
