' ' ' 'Crafty Endeavours: By the Sea

Sunday 10 June 2012

By the Sea

Time  for another challenge at Impression Obsession following their latest rubber stamps release with lots of "sea" inspired images from  Gary Robertson (one of my faves!) and first time stamp designer Dina Kowal. Naturally the theme is By the Sea...

I used the Beach Chair (F2337) for the main image and tried something different to my usual techniques for variety !

I have used patterned papers for the chair and towel, and colored pencils to shade. The towel is
mounted with foam tape to give a bit of depth, but that isn't very obvious in the picture.
I colored the rest of the image with markers and used transparent glitter on the sand.  Finally, I used glossy accents to make the glass look like glass (completely invisible on the photo).

Hope you will like it,
