Simon Monday Transparent Challenge

I decided to play along with the Simon Monday Challenge Blog this week were the subject is Transparent.  I dug out my Tim Holtz Frosted Film and decided that it reminded me of the frost that sea glass has.  I’ve been obsessed with sea glass for years now.  So this is what I came up with.DSC_0001 The background was done with four different Distress Stains using a technique I learned when I took Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry 101.  The image stamps are by Hero Arts and Graphic 45.  The alpha stamps are by Studio G.  The die cut is by Die-Versions.  I covered a scrap piece of card stock with the Frosted Film and then cut it using the die cut.  After I adhered the Compass Rose to the card I outlined it using Tim Holtz Distress Markers.  I stained a piece of twine using the same colors as the background and wrapped it around the card.  DSC_0003I wire wrapped my sea glass and using a tail of wire, wrapped it to the twine so that it was securely fixed to the card.  Thanks for stopping by.

  3. You did a fantastic job on this tag! I, too, am a huge fan of sea glass and oceans and all things water-related. You captured all of those feelings beautifully with this tag. I especially loved how you incorporated an actual piece of sea glass into the piece. The color palette and stamping patterns go beautifully together. Thank you so much for your clever interpretation of our theme and for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!
