Beach Day

Here I am again with another fun little tag made with the awesome new Artistic Outpost release Boardwalk.  For this piece, I stamped the beach hut four times with Jet Black archival onto white CS and colored them with distress markers and cut them out.  Using a jumbo manila tag, I prepped the background by sponging the top third with Tumbled Glass DI, then embossed the wave using the border die from the Travel Signs set.  The wave was sponged with Stormy Sky DI.  The sand was created by combining a 50/50 mix of Vintage Photo and Antique Linen distress embossing powders which created a roughed up, realistic sand look.

And that's it - just a simple tag having fun with the new Boardwalk plate.  Artistic Outpost stamps are on sale this week at Artistic Outpost - 15% off!  Grab this hot new set and have a blast!!!
