I stamped the girl, shell, and sentiment on canvas paper with Coffee Archival Ink. I colored with Ranger Distress Markers and a water pen. All images are from the Beach Babes stamp plate as is the sand background stamp below.
I've tried many techniques to create sand and I really like the look of this one. I used my new Ranger Emboss It dabber directly onto the sand background stamp; after stamping, I heat set Ranger antique linen distress embossing powder. I think it really looks like wet sand at the beach and it really brings out the sand design of this stamp.
The tag itself is the swipe, spritz, and swish method of covering a tag with distress paint, distress ink pad, and distress stain. To create more of a feeling of water and sky at the top of the tag, I stamped the handwritten music sheet background stamp with Ranger distress ink in Tumbled Glass. I chose this stamp from the Behind the Scenes plate, because the girl is hearing the sounds of the sea (music) coming from inside the seashell.
