Double D Challenge

Hello again...

I'm back to share a project I made for the new challenge at
Where Darlene's team are hosting a challenge to use a Silhouette(s)


I've wanted to re-create a project that I made ages ago and framed. Over the years it has faded - it had  a sentimental meaning to me - You can see the original post and picture here
Here's my remake


I've yet to frame it and maybe I will add some shells and things to the frame


I used the new Distress Oxides to sponge this and I'm not sure if I agree that they blend more easily but they certainly react with water in a different way... you can create splashes in the sea water and dab off for clouds.


The images are stamped and the trees were cut on the Cameo... For the computer generated sentiment I used a piece of printable acetate...

Head on over to the Double D Blog to see what both Darlene and Diane's team have created and once again there is a lovely prize on offer


Have a lovely day

Beautiful sponged beach and ocean! I adore those palm tree silhouettes, they always make me happy! So many wonderful memories holding my daughter's hand scouring the beach for treasures! Love your original post and creation too! What a fabulous piece of ART!

Ros, this card is fantastic! I love the silhouette image and the sentiment is beautiful. The background you have created looks amazing with the trees and image.

Your silhouette project is so eye catching. The black against the soft background colours is fabulous. Still haven't bought any oxides yet...still thinking x Maybe you'll re-post this once it is in a frame etc? Would love to admire it...Again! x

Ros, Your seashore scene is so beautiful and filled with Love for your son, the seashore and life. TFS the link also to your beautiful original card from 2013. Hugs

Oh. My. Word. I think this is so beautiful! Then I got all enchanted by the beauty and meaning of your original project and almost forgot to come back here. I'm so glad you resurrected the concept. Nobody does beach like you. It will look so lovely framed and with some of the netting and seashells. I haven't tried the oxide inks. I do love the water splashes you created.

Just gorgeous, Ros. I took a peek at your shadow box too. It is funny though theyhave the same stamp they have a different feel. The bold palm tree on this one makes it feel more casual paired with the sentiment while the shadow box is more formal and thought provoking. Love them both. Perfect stamp and sentiment for this challenge.

Loved your first project & post, Ros & love your new one, too! Beautiful inking & images, my friend!

Darnell said...

This is every bit as gorgeous as your original from a few years ago, Ros! I love the beach, too, and all the memories of being on the beach with our wee lad over the years, splashing in the waves and collecting sand dollars and bits of amber glass. Thank you for evoking memories for me, too, with your beautiful art! Hugs, Darnell

This is really beautiful . Gorgeous beach colours.

I have that stamp and I like that the silhouettes of both adult and child could be either female or male. (Are they wearing skirts or shorts?). The image has always reminded me of photos of my partner and son walking on the beach.

I'm interested to see you use Oxide inks - I've jut succumbed and ordered a few.

Redanne said...

Oh wow Ros, this is gorgeous! I love those silhouette trees and the stamping looks amazing! I also love the beautiful background you created with the Oxides too. I have been experimenting with them but haven't quite made anything yet, so well done you! Anne xx

I love the beach card, Ros,I don't know anyone who would not like this or have memories of going to the beach. Such a beautiful and serene scene! Wishing I were at the beach this week....this year has been crazy...it has seemed like summer for the past month even with a little rain. Have a good Friday!

Mona Pendleton said...

Such a pretty card Ros! Love the beautiful scene that you created! Makes me think of my upcoming summer vacation :) Hope you have a great weekend!

Darlene said...

Oh Ros this is just GORGEOUS! You did a beautiful job on that background with your oxide inks (I'm still experimenting with mine) ... absolutely beautiful! Sorry I'm so late commenting! Easter holiday had me extra busy this year. Thanks for sharing such amazing inspiration! You are a true artist!!
