By The Sea

This card was made using the Japanese Fishing Boat image available as a single stamp or on the Taylored Stamps Marine 2 Sheet.

This card was created for a sketch challenge for OSA. I think the appeal of this card is using a unique image from Taylored Stamps Marine 2 sheet. The image is stamped with Midnight Blue StazOn ink and mounted on black. That part was put aside while the background was built. Several patterned papers were used using the same tone of blue. Layering on black created great contrast. The vertical image was then added with the pearlsadded last.
I think the featured Japanese Fisherman image being vertical on the horizontal background really makes the image stand out.

The background of the tan card is by Basic Grey. The divisions are from a reed type paper similar to something used for placemats.

I stamped Japanese Fisherman using Kaleidacolor Cappuccino Delight.

The starfish is a button with the shank removed and colored with Krylon gold and adhered with Glossy Accents.

The sand dollar image is also from the same sheet.

All images come on the sheet Japanese Marine Sheet 2 by Taylored Stamps or can be purchased individually from Art Neko.
