Beside the Seaside by Sioux Jenneys

Hello everyone! It's a tag from me today :)

1. Using stamps from the new Beside the Seaside plate stamp one of the fish in Archival black and three of the shells in Archival coffee and sepia onto watercolour paper and cut out.

2. Colour the fish with the fabby new Distress markers (I used spiced marigold, chipped sapphire and  fired brick)

3. Colour over the shells in Distress Ink scattered straw using a cut and dry nib.

4. I inked the base tag using Distress Inks in scattered straw, weathered wood, faded jeans and bundled sage then did the spritz and flick effect that works so well with watery themes ;)

5. I then used the large and small wavy stamps from the Borders A5 and A6 plates to create a bit of seaweed using Distress Ink bundled sage and some air bubbles using the one of the smaller borders from the A6 plate in Archival  aquamarine

6. Stamp the sentiment from the Beside the Seaside plate in Archival black and attach the fish and shells before adding some pearls and some ribbon.

Beside the sea is a wonderful place to be :) See you again soon!
xoxo Sioux
