Vacation in a Bottle

Happy New Release!  I am loving the new Artistic Outpost  Boardwalk plate.

My project features a mini-vacation in a bottle. I know I could use one of these!
I stamped the boardwalk image on misted tissue paper using black ink. I tore the edges and distressed them with a touch of brown dye ink.

I stamped the bathing beauties onto white cardstock using black ink. I cut them out using detail scissors. 

I painted a piece of white cardstock with lime green acrylic paint. I waited for it to dry and then I stamped the house using black ink and cut it out. I then stamped the sentiment on the same painted cardstock and cut it out to attach to the top of the bottle.

I stamped several of the shells on a pink and white painted background using black ink. I cut the shells out and attached them to the raffia at the top of the bottle.

I painted the cork in blue and white acrylic paints. I stamped the Atlantic City emblem and cut it out and attached it to the top of the bottle.

Have a wonderful weekend.
