Down By the Sea!

TGIF and I have a cooling tag to share with you on this fine Friday! What better way to enjoy the summer with a good cool down on the "Boardwalk," so here we go.
The background was created by masking and layering for land, sea and air and I used Distress inks. For the land and sea, in between layers of color, I did cover with embossing powder, which was removed when I finished with the sky background.
The images were stamped using Archival Watering Can and Black Archival for the sentiments. For the Atlantic City Beach Mall scene, I did watercoloring using Distress inks on regular card stock. All was finished off with some dyed cheesecloth and seashells.
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Love this tag Terry and such a 'cool' design (pun intended lol). Great layering of the images over the background and the little seashells top it off beautifully xx
