I have used the fabulous BOARDWALK plate to create a framed dimensional piece.

I painted the frame with Fresco Finish Paint inky pool adding highlights with sky paint, using only a touch of paint to dry brush over the top. I also added Treasure silver gilding wax around the edges.
A piece of corrugated card has been added in the back of the frame adding machine stitching around the edges. The corrugated card adds wonderful texture to the backdrop. I also painted the card with touches of Gesso. I stamped the focal image first, masked her off and then stamped the Pier collage in the background. I then coloured with Distress Ink faded jeans and flicked with water to add bleached out areas in the background.
I added a bottle, coloured with Alcohol Ink and tied some natural twine around the neck of the bottle for added interest. I also included two summer Chitchat stickers and stamped 'under the boardwalk down by the sea' to the bottom of my frame.
White hessian has been added to the frame along with the two Steel Pier tickets, Chitchat sticker and carefree embellishment. I also added wooden letters to add 'SEA' to my frame.
I've also added more wooden letters to the top of the frame along with a couple of shells.

There is a fabulous 15% off all rubber stamps at the moment at Artistic Outpost, a fabulous time to stock up on some wonderful images.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
