Well I have been remiss, two Sunday Stampers out! Got caught in busy work and family affairs, so here I am back on track with my Sunday Stamper banner and the missing 'R' (see previous posts!)
It was my birthday yesterday and it's my no 3 daughters' birthday on Thursday and so the two of us are going to the seaside with our cameras next week to celebrate! I thought I would try and capture a little of the treat in store with this weeks challenge.
I used all the blue distress inks to ink the back of the banner and then stamped the sea-gulls and lighthouse using brown achival ink. I'm afraid I do not know who made the stamp as it was a used gift from a friend. The bottom of the banner has walnut stain, rusty hinge and spiced marmalade distress ink for the background and some seashore bleached wood and fishing lines attached with a small stapler. The R has been aged with raisin alcohol ink and attached with some more twine. The stamped shells come from Stampingtons' seashore elements set and I used distress markers in various browns directly onto the stamp. I love the way you can use the markers to blend on the back of the stamp, it looks far more subtle than colouring in the outline! So there we are, Barbara is now completed, 'S for next week, thought I'd better write it down incase I get out of sinc. again! Hope you are all enjoying the bank holiday. xx
