Seaside Triptych

Hi there, Linda here sharing a piece that I made earlier this week.  I really love the way it turned out.   I borrowed Tammy Tutterow's great idea of stamping with the metallic Brushed Pewter distress paint.  I also used her colors for the sponging because they look so gorgeous together plus they are perfect for a seaside piece.
I started with three arches cut from white card stock and stamped the sea items in the metallic pewter distress paint, then dried it with my heat tool.  Once dry, the arch panels were sponged with Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers.  Then the stamping was added - I used images from Beyond the Sea and from Office Ephemera.  The music staff was stamped with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and the black images were stamped with Jet Black archival.
 The sea creatures were cut from plain chipboard with an old Cuttlebug die and painted with two coats of Brushed Pewter distress paint.
I used a sheet of corrugated carboard to mount my triptych on.

That's a wrap. Hope you enjoyed looking at my little triptych!
