Key West 1927

This week over at One Powerful Hour the theme is...


Ocean...


I challenged myself this week to not use traditional blues and greens. The first place I turned was to Altered Pages wonderful vintage images. This one is from the collage sheet On the Beach.


I tri folded a dark brown cardstock that cordinates with the bathing suits. To add depth I stamped a background that resembles waves in gold. Next I affixed a decorative paper that to me looks like sand. I cut out the collage image using decorative scissors and then placed it on the card, cutting it in the apropriate place. To add an element of personaliation I named each person and placed a date and time on the image.


The Fish is from Paula's Kit Club, a full color german scrap. The sea shells are from some vintage post cards. I added diamond glaze to all three elements. To finish off this piece I added some photo corners and texture paste with sand mixed in along with some bits of shell.
