I was given an opportunity to be a guest designer at The Artistic Stamper for the month of October. The challenge theme this month is "travel". When I think of travel, my mind immediately goes to the seashore. I always like to bring home a few reminders of my visit to the beach. I altered a vintage playing card box for this project. The colorful background paper was created using tempera paint sticks. The Gibson Girls were colored with pencils and given dimension with the use of foam tape pads. I used seed beads for the fish eyes.
Many thanks to The Artistic Stamper Team for supplying a variety of wonderful stamps for me to work with. I used the following stamp sets for this project:
Swimming fish with waves
Gibson Girls 2
Journaling Words 2
I would like to enter this project in the following challenges:
As You Like it - I used brights on this project. I think it gave the background the bit of punch it needed.
