A vintage beach scene....

....for today's Creative Expression make.....

A nice simple monotone make, simply stamp the two figures.....'Beauty and the Beach' and 'Treasure Seeker' onto a piece of white card using Pumice Stone distress ink. Then using a damp paintbrush pull out some of colour from the stamped line, adding more colour where necessary by picking up ink from your craft sheet. Continue until the image is painted and then blend a bit more Pumice Stone around the edges using cut 'n' dry foam.....
Mount onto a piece of white card leaving a narrow border. Then take another piece of card slightly larger and add some Pumice Stone just round the edges. 
Wrap some woven hessian style ribbon and some white seam binding around the middle of this piece and then mount onto a white card blank. 
Then mount the picture onto this using some 3D glue gel/silicone.  Add a bow and some stamped seagulls to finish .....stamped and coloured same way as main image.
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your week :)
