It's time for a new challenge from Emerald Creek Dares! So many things to do in the summer...but I am not a real outdoorsy person! But if it's the beach I am all over that and camping was the big thing my kids and I used to do.
I started with a great 6X6 canvass and stained it with some Distress Spray in Mermaid Lagoon and Twisted Citron. I then took some Tim Holtz plain tissue, stamped my images on it in Archival Black, quick shot with the heat gun to set it. I then scrunched up my tissue and rolled it in Distress Spray on my craft mat. I layered that on the canvass for my background. I added a bit of gel medium in certain spots and sprinkled in some Irridescent Shimmer Embossing powder on the sea side and weathered wood embossing powder on the camping side to add some texture.
|You can see the Weathered Wood EP in the bottom corner here and the image of the outhouse on the tissue paper too.|
|The Irridescent Shimmer powder is there, but the pics do not do the shimmer you get justice! And there is the fishing boat image there too.|
|Love the outhouse image! And really, we've all had to use them on a camping trip. I colored in all the images using the Distress Crayons.|
|Yes I have used this starfish stamp alot! I love it! This time I embossed it in the Thanksgiving EP and filled in the open spaces with a Distress Crayon.|
|Campfires are the best thing about camping....sitting around them roasting marshmallows, talking and just relaxing.|
