Somewhere Beyond the Sea

Happy Monday!! My niece left yesterday and I'm still trying to recover!! We had a great time, but oh my, did she wear me out :)


I have a tag to share with you today, created from the awesome Beyond the Sea stamp set I won from Artistic Outpost :)


I started with Strathmore Watercolor Paper cut with a Tim Holtz Tag & Bookplate die. The girl was stamped first on the tag with Ranger Sepia Archival Ink and on Inkadinkado Stamping Masking Paper. She was cut out of the Masking Paper and then it was applied over the girl on the tag. The lighthouse was stamped next, first on the tag and then on the Masking Paper. The image was cut from the Masking paper and applied to the image on the tag. A cloud stencil was cut from paper and then starting at the top of the tag, TH Broken China Distress Ink was inked along the edge with a Tsukineko Fingertip Sponge Dauber. The girl was colored in with TH Distress Markers in Aged Mahogany, Bundled Sage, Scattered Straw and Vintage Photo and a TH Waterbrush. The lighthouse was colored in with Walnut, Antique Linen and a Waterbrush. The grass with Peeled Paint and a Waterbrush. The birds and the bottom sentiment were stamped with Black Archival Ink. TH Idea-ology Crinkle Ribbon was inked with TH Walnut Distress Stain. A TH Philosophy tag is attached to a TH Trinket Pin. The edges of the tag were inked with Walnut Distress Ink.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Artistic Outpost - July Referral Program - Anything Goes w/ AO Stamps
  2. Simon Says Stamp - Pin It
  3. Simon Says Stamp and Show - Good to be Green 
  4. Craft It Up & Link It Up #10 - Summer
