Sunset Beach

This is the piece of artwork that I have done for UK Art Raffle run by Flo (Hazel). This new Raffle is explained on her website, but it is definately not a swap and the monthly winner will receive all the artwork sent in during that month ! The theme is 'SUMMER SUN' for August.

I chose a glossy board base and cut it to approx. 5ins square and this was first coloured directly with inkpads from the Whispers dye ink range - I used orange, royal blue & sunshine to give the impression of a sunset over the sea. This was dried with a blast from my heatgun.

I then used a sunset beach stamp from Tin Can Mail (Inkadinkado - 91566X) which I inked with Versamark and stamped twice on a piece of light white card. I applied detail black embossing powder to the words top and bottom of one image and heat embossed them. I then applied Moonglow midnight sapphire obsidian embossing powder (gorgeous sapphire blue) to the second Versamarked image and heat embossed this. I then cut out the words and the image.

I then used USArtquest stargazers and jewelz watercolour pallet paints to infill the un-embossed areas of the image with a brush and water and allowed to dry.

I applied the embossed images as seen with glue stick in the middle of the plate and finished with edging the plate with Versamark and gold EP.
I really like the bright and vibrant colours and wished I was somewhere with better weather !!
