holiday snapshot

Hi all and good morning ...
It's Suzanne here.
I'm sharing (maybe) another inspiration for our challenge 'fly away' on the de stempelwinkel stampers challenge blog.

supplies used
pelican CP R556
rough ocean CP S566 

antique linen
salty ocean
spun sugar 
broken china
weathered wood
pumice stone
dylusion spray white linen DR-DYC37873
waterbrush YA-KWB09 
chalk paint

The upper part of the card has been made with the wrinkle free distress technique (distress tains spun sugar and antique linen), then the pelican was stamped and masked, afterwards the rough ocean stamp image. The wave has been coloured with distress stains broken china, salty ocean and weatheed wood, the wave was highlighted with white linen. The latter was also used for the pelican. For the beach I used antique linen. I wanted to adhere a little sand with acrylic medium, but it didn't work. So I painted over the beach with acrylic paint desert sand and I love the texture that appeared.
The (cheap) plastic frame was painted with chalk paint and distressed, the ammonite is an embellishment made from plaster.

Please take a few minutes and stop by at the de stempelwinkel challenge blog and we'd love to see your artwork there.

Have a great Sunday everyone,
hugs, Suzanne xx

Beautiful frame and scenery. I have seen pelicans in Florida, and I would certainly like to "fly away" to Florida again! :-)
