WT175 - Cinnamon Seaside
Good morning - the sun is shining and the birds are chirping once again. Happy day!
It was such a beautiful morning that when I saw the Ways to Use it Challenge at SCS I immediately knew I wanted to use this seaside stamp! Sure glad I did I love how it turned out :) We were to use something from our spice cupboards. I chose cinnamon. I did a watercolour wash on the background with river rock, bashful blue and so saffron then stamped the image in stazon timber brown ink. I added more colour with a blender pen with the same colours mentioned and close to cocoa. I used a glue pen in the sandy grassy areas and sprinkled on some cinnamon then tapped off the excess - sure smells wonderful! The base of the card is so saffron and I stamped the linen bg on it. For embellishment I used 2 edge anchors (ctmh), off white hemp, some beads and a shell! The sentiment is from ctmh.
Sure hope the sun is shining on you today ;)
