For my 'At the Seaside' themed piece I have chosen to play with the new medium size Tando Creative Fan. These are sooo versatile!
I painted the base with Fresco Paint in Ice Blue and overstamped with a Crackle stamp and Versafine in Smokey Gray. Unfortunately this blurred a bit but as I was trying to keep the colours soft I didn't mind! So be warned...don't use Versafine over Fresco paints!!!!!
N.B. When you are decorating one of the Tando Creative Fans please be aware that all the segments are slightly different.
Using the upper section as a template I drew and cut 2 pieces of paper from the Crafty Individuals Book 6 (The Seaside), then cut three more segments from plain white card. (Always a good idea to number the backs) Using Crafty Individuals Stamp Set CI272 I stamped onto the white card in the Smokey Gray. I stamped again onto scrap card and coloured the shells and seahorses with Derwent Inktense Pencils. Then I clear embossed the coloured pieces before cutting them out. I rubbed a little Distress Ink in Broken China around the edges of the segments before glueing the shells on.
Using a mix of PaperArtsy Fresco Paint in Cheesecake and Pumpkin Soup I painted the top section. Glossy Accents were applied and while it was still a little sticky I attached the rough string (esier said than done as your fingers also get sticky hahaha) and when dry I glued the top section to the bottom. The card segments were glued in place and the seahorses added. To finish off I used more string to attach two shells and then glued another stamped shell over the top.
Thank you so much for popping by, please leave a comment, I love the feedback whether its good or bad!!! HUGS xxxx
