A super fun mixed media card made for the JUN13VSNC Summer Splash challenge. We don't have an ocean near us, so the sound of summer to me is time at the wave pool at our waterpark. So I was inspired by the frothy waves of summer to make a watery background card. I stamped the new Off the Grid SU! stamp in the background and then the two sizes of anchors from Strong Anchor in Coastal Cabana. Next I swiped on some white gesso, then dripped on watered down black paint. I let this drip a bit, then wiped it off for a grey tone. Then went back and did the full strength watered down black paint for the darker splashes. The sentiment is embossed onto aged paper dp, then I tore the edges, rolled each end into a scroll and tied on an anchor cut with the Nautical Die Set with some black scrapper's floss. So much fun to get paint on my fingers again!
