Some time ago I made a batch of 'ink over dried glue resist' backgrounds. On this one I stenciled some dots using a brown ink, and then it sat, until recently.
I stamped the panel using the Crafty Individuals stamp 'Of The Sea'. The stamp is fabulously detailed, and I had difficulty getting a good impression, and then the paper moved in the MISTI so I could not re-stamp... so I used a fine black pen to add in detail that was missing
To 'colour' the ship, I stamped the image onto plain white paper and painted it with watercolour paint before trimming it out and paper piecing it over the original image
To the sea area around the base of the ship, I added dark blue and some white pen for detail
The sentiment was a magazine freebie, which was stamped on deep blue card and white embossed, then trimmed into a banner shape before being mounted on foam dots
I added this washi tape to the inside - it reminds me of compasses.
