Step 1:

Place a piece of low-tack tape horizontally across a piece of Mixed Media paper. Place the Cloud Edger stencil slightly below the top of the paper. Use a Sponge Dauber to apply Summer Sky Memento Ink over the top of the stencil. Move the stencil downwards and rotate it, then apply Summer Sky Memento ink over the top. Repeat until the cloudy sky is complete.


Step 2:

Tear a piece of scrap cardstock and place the torn edge horizontally under the cloudy sky, secured with low-tack tape. Flip the panel 180°. Use a Sponge Dauber to apply a light layer of Teal Zeal Memento Ink to cover the bottom portion of the panel.

Step 3:

Place the Water Ripples stencil over the sponged teal area and secure with low-tack tape. Use the Sponge Dauber to apply Teal Zeal Memento Inks over the stencil onto the image panel. Trim the panel to 5.25” x 7.75”. 


Step 4:

Secure the image panel to the base of a stamping platform. Position the Caravelle stamp facedown on the top left of the image panel so that the bit of ocean at the bottom of the stamp is even with the top of the sponged sea. Ink the stamp with Nocturne VersaFine Clair Ink and stamp. Re-ink and stamp again if necessary to attain a good impression. Remove the stamp from the platform.


Step 5:

Position the Open Sea Quote Stamp facedown on the lower right part of the image panel. Ink the stamp with Nocturne VersaFine Clair Ink and stamp. Re-ink and stamp again if necessary. Remove the stamp and the image panel from the platform. Heat set the image panel. 

Step 6: 

Use pens to color the Caravelle. Sorry that there are no photos.


Step 7:

Use Tear-It! Tape to adhere the image panel to a piece of 5.5” x 8” black chipboard or heavy weight cardstock. 

Step 8:

Wrap twine twice around the base of the piece and tie a knot.
