Under the Boardwalk - Artistic Outpost May Release Blog Hop

Down by the Sea.....

Now that I have you signing along with me, I'm excited to share with you a project using images from Boardwalk, the latest release from Artistic Outpost. 

For my first project, I used SVG Cuts Summer Holiday Kit, cutting the Suitcase pieces from Brown card stock and KaiserCraft Pattern Paper using the Silhouette Cameo. The images are stamped in Ranger Coffee Archival on White card stock, then colored with a combination of STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils and Ergo-Soft Pencils, blending the colors with Gamsol.

My card uses a left over piece of MonoPrinting that I created with some Acrylic Paints and the Gelli Arts Printing Plate.  The houses were masked and stamped in Ranger Black Archival on the mono printing.  The "bathing beauties" were stamped in Black Archival on White card stock and colored with STAEDTLER watercolor pencils.
