Bathing Beauty

Hello again, Alison here, with another project inspired by the amazing Boardwalk stamp set.
This tag grew out of a watery background of inks and stains.  The bathing beauty is stamped in Jet Black Archival.  Then I cut a mask so that I could stamp the beach hut "behind" her in Coffee Archival.
The sentiment is embossed for a translucent look, and there's some Antique Linen Distress Embossing Powder playing the role of the sand along the foot of the tag.
I added some delicate fishing net draped along the top corner, with a couple of pier tickets, so that she can go for a wander along the boardwalk.
And there's some sunshiny seam binding dyed with Scattered Straw and Antique Linen Distress Inks, tied off with some twine, to finish it off.

Come and join in the fun of the June Referral Program by entering your projects containing at least one Artistic Outpost image... you could win an AO stamp set to play with!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I'll see you again soon.
