Seaside Project 2 - Tim Holtz Seahorse frame for Country View Crafts

 Oh I do like to be beside the seaside.

'Anything Seaside' is still a challenge title for June at Country View Challenges on FaceBook.

My choice has been to decorate and make a frame that sits nicely with the idea of being beside the sea on a lovely summer's day.

I love to use up scraps and inky backgrounds and some shapes have been reworked with leftovers taken from my bits folders. I have also used a number of older dies and stamp sets.

Seahorse cut from TH Sand and Sea Bigz die. Not readily available any more. Stencilled with the new mini leaf stencil using distress crackle paste sprinkled with Tattered Rose distress glaze. Later I sanded the texture and rubbed over vintage photo and unchartered mariner distress inks. 

Starfish stamped and cut using Nautical Blueprint CMS194 and Rusty Hinge, Ripe Persimmon and Scattered Straw Distress Watercolour Pencils. Dried and overstamped with Vermillion archival and Scorched Timber distress ink. Over that I applied distress crackle paste and when the crackles had appeared and it was dry I rubbed in walnut stain distress ink.

The frame and background in the aperture were created just by dipping into DWP puddles and drying. Distress crackle paste was applied round the edges and had unchartered mariner rubbed into them when dry. Splattered with white ink.

The sentiment is my own,produced on the computer.
