Set sail on the SS Holtz! I really had a lot of fun making my project for the Studio L3 Compendium of Curiosities 2 - Week 7 challenge. Thanks Daisy and the eclectic Paperie for sponsoring this week with a chance to win a $25 gift certificate!
This week's technique, found on page 49 of Tim's book, is called Brushless Watercolor. I used the technique on the ship stamp, with Pumice Stone stain, and then I added some highlights with Black Soot and Chipped Sapphire Distress Markers and a white gel pen.
I made the ship's wheel from Tim's mini cogs die and added a few Vintaj starfish charms to my netting. The netting was made from a mesh bag I picked up at the dollar store and dyed with Walnut Stain Distress Stain. One of Tim's corked vial's worked great for my message in a bottle and I made a few gold coins from embossed grungeboard circles to complete my scene on the beach.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
