Hello and good morning crafty peeps! This week at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we want to see some type of ocean/beach/fishy/seaside scene on your projects! Simple, right? Here's what I came up with:
Here's the inside:
Yep, that's right. Santa is on a tropical island, preparing to catch some of those tasty waves on his surfboard! LOL! After lightly sponging around the main panel with Tumbled Glass DI, I added the wave sticker, trimming to where I needed it to be and also carefully peeling up the glittery wave froth and repositioning them to fit the panel. I fussy cut a bit of kraft paper for the sandy island, edged with Walnut Stain DI and scribbled little bumps with a sepia marker.I even tore a bit of kraft paper inked the edges and adhered over the bottom of the surfboard, so it looked like it was stuck in the sand and not just hovering. After coloring everything with Spectrum Noir markers, the lights on the palm trees and Santa's hat have Crystal Stickles added for a bit of sparkle, and the shades have Glossy Accents applied to them for shine.
Close up of sparkle and shine
