Cooooool Wave

I'm playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  I just received this stamp from 'The Ton' and couldn't wait to use it.  However, that being said, it had a huge learning curve for me.  I'm sure it's operator error, but I couldn't get the colors right for what I saw in my head until I'd used every shade of blue in my stash.  I finally settled on distress ink and a distress stain. I stamped with Tumbled Glass Distress Stain for the first layer - no spritzing just really wet stain with the dauber.  For the second layer I used Distress Ink Stormy Skies and spritzed it with water before stamping.  For the third layer I used Distress Ink Stormy Skies again and this time no water spritzing.  Once it was dry I die cut the watercolor panel, then stamped the sentiment, and mounted it on a black cardstock base. Supplies listed below.

Materials Used:
  • The Ton, Wave Stamp
  • Papertrey Ink Sentiment, Larkspur
  • Avery Elle, Pierced Rectangles
  • Distress Ink, Stormy Skies
  • Distress Stain, Tumbled Glass
  • Paper, Canson 140 lb. Cold Press Watercolor Paper
  • Black Hobby Lobby Card base
  • Black Onyx Ink for the sentiment
