Another monthly swap at Artful ATCs and this time the theme is… through the window.
So I started with a die cut window from my stash that I painted with black gesso.
I then took a panel I had stencilled and blended distress inks onto and stamped an image from Mediterranean Moments. I then added some Hickory Smoke ink to the edge which would be outside the window and left the inside brighter… I also added some light shading to the image.
I then layered it up and added heat embossing across the whole panel. I then did a dymo label for the title.
Next I took the stamps from Creative Stamping magazine and made a scene for through the porthole.
I added gesso to a light green piece of card then added layers of distress oxide. I then stamped the seahorses and the seaweed.
I then stamped the porthole on separate paper and cut it out. I then added the colour using distress stains.
I once again coated it all with versamark and embossing powder.
