It's the start of another new challenge at Fashionable stamping Challenges and for this week it was my turn to choose the theme and I chose
this can be anything related to water ie rivers,ocean,rain etc.
I picked this challenge theme as I wanted to use another new set of stamps from the fabulous new range from Brett Weldele by Stampers Anonomous, this set is called "Ship Captain". My water therefore is the ocean.
|Brett Weldele - Ship Captain|
My background is made up of 2 different gelli prints, but using the same acrylic paint colours, to show a difference between sea and sky, the swirls in the sea piece have been made using a catalyst tool and the clouds in the sky using bubble wrap.
My stamped images were first stamped onto gesso painted dictionary paper I love the gesso as it makes a great base for most colouring mediums and these have been coloured using a combination of faber-Castell gelato and Portfolio oil pastels the gesso allows you to really smudge the colours.whilst all images are glued flat to the paper I have used pinflair silicone glue so the captain is raised off the page.
Just for a little contrast I have stamped the 2 sayings in crimson archival ink. I have used all the stamps in the set. The checkered stamp that I have added around the edge is a Kaiser craft stamp.
We would love it if you popped over to Fashionable stamping challenge and join in with our watery theme this fortnight.
