Hi friends! It is of course Monday again, and this week we have a 'Stamp and Mist' challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Fun!
Die cut two strips for the block. I used mat board, but you can also use chipboard and paint it white. It is an XL die, so you need the Extended Cutting Pads to run it through your Big Shot or Vagabond. Scoreboards dies both cuts and scores the material. You can clearly see the score lines on this photo.
Cut five squares of watercolour paper and white emboss the four blueprint stamps as well as a sentiment. They don't all fit completely, but don't worry about that.
When the misted ink is dry, you can add more colour, which works particularly well because of the pale mist colours. Smear Iced Spruce on your craft sheet, mist with water and pick up with a paint brush. Also give the shapes shadows.
Use a strong adhesive to assemble the block. I used Wonder Tape, placed along the flaps of the die cut. The panels were glued with matte multi medium, and on purpose I didn't place it all the way to the edge, to add to the distressed look.
The mix of mists look nice together and I particularly like the bits of white.
The block was tied with twine to add to the nautical look and I used Small Talk stickers for sentiments,
The sentiment is placed on top and I also added some shells. The splatters almost looks like a flock of bird here.
