I couldn't resist the pun!
I swap one-on-one every month with another Oregon lady using stamps and Oregon themes. This month I wanted to use some of my hand-carved stamps and decided to create a little scene of things you might find at the beach. I haven't been to the coast for a couple of years and I miss it, but this made me feel right at home.
I used watercolor paper and stamped in black. I added more detail around the base of the lighthouse to extend the ground off to both sides more. I used Distress markers to color on an acrylic block and then picked up colors with an aquabrush for painting on the images. After I dried it with a heat gun I laid on the chevron stencil and sprayed with blue glimmer mist.
Then the pun occured to me and I added it with letter stickers.
