Boardwalk

I have used the newly released BOARDWALK plate from Artistic Outpost to create a card this week with lots of dimension.
My backdrop has been created with mowed lawn and salty ocean Distress Inks, one of my favourite colour palettes at the moment and I thought perfect for the BOARDWALK plate. I also spritzed the inks with water to give me a few splatters in the background for added interest.
I die cut the pocket watch and added several layers for dimension, stamping the central panel with the bathing beauties set against the Pier again coloured with Distress Inks.
I added lettering using wooden letters and Alpha Parts to add "Time For Summer" and added the stamped beauty at the bottom of my card.
Ball chain has been added to the pocket watch for further dimension and texture and "under the boardwalk down by the sea has been added to the top of the watch. I have also stamped BOARDWALK three times to the top corner .

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

One of my favourites Tracy. I love the spritz/flicked background as it looks like the whole thing is set under the sea. Great colours too. Hugs, Jenny x

beautiful Tracy. you and Alison are really creating some fab art work with this set. just goes to show how clever you both are to be able to visualise what you can make with these stamps. I must admit, I would never have thought they could have looked so good (!)

Nice summer creation and every time I see a "Boardwalk" creation I start singing - down on the boardwalk we'll be having some fun - down on the boardwalk - board walk!
