I like the way this turned out to be so soft. My challenge was to take an 8.5 sketch and make it a 12”. And, of the options to choose for the border I went with the paint.
This is the original sketch I chose. I went into my file of 8.5 x 11 papers that I’ve had for many years and selected the beach scene. The 12×12 sheet is old too, covered with water related words, pasted together and the border was painted with white acrylic paint. I sponged the edges by rubbing it directly with the stamp pad.
For my embellishments I stamped images from two of my favorite water related sets: Tropical Party and By the Tide by Stampin’ Up!. Inks are Lucky Limeade, Cool Caribbean, and Crisp Cantaloupe. The title sticker is by K&Co.
Thanks for stopping by, please tell me what you think of this.
