Double D, Let's Go To The Beach!

Good Morning! 

A brand new Challenge is up and running over at the Double D Challenge Blog

Here is your Inspiration Tile:


I think this was one of the most fun days I have spent in my craft room recently!

Here is what I created:

Lots going on!  

I started with water color paper and Ranger Texture Paste and a stencil from Gina K Designs.  After the paste dried I sponged on Distress Oxide inks in Peeled Paint and Faded Jeans.  
Added Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Gold White and Sweet Mint.  
White Paint Splatters.  
Nuvo Drops in Clear. 
Fun Foam.

Die Versions Scallop Shell.  
Cheery Lynn Sand Dollar and Starfish.  
Memory Box Woodland Branch, cropped.  
Gina K Designs Ocean Minded Kit; Starfish stamp and die.  
Paper Smooches Foliage 2.  
Sand Dollar stamped and cropped from the Impression Obsession stamp set, Joy.

Ellen Hutson sentiment, Mermaid's Tail.  
Vellum and Clear Embossing Powder over Amalgam Black ink.

Sentiment by Gina K Designs, Gifts From The Sea.

Such a wonderful sentiment, one of my favorites.  
This stamp is Red Rubber--and oldie but a goodie!

I love the texture of the Paste!  

I had so much FUN I made 2!  

All die cuts were water colored using Distress inks.

Please come on over to the Double D Blog and join in all of the FUN!
