Darkroom Door Photo Stamp - Surfboards

Hi there - Shaz here with another step by step :D

To the method ...
Stamp the lovely stamp in black Versafine ink and emboss with clear Embossing powder.
I had bought some lovely cheesecloth from Bec and wanted to use it with surfboard stamp, + the Dylusions teal spray, also perfect pearls spray. Has lovely sheen on this, just cant see it.
Here is the dyed cheesecloth (also used it as a stamp while it wet and juicy on some other card to right). It was too dark when done so I wrapped it up like a sausage and put a Rubber band down length of it, like we did for tie dyeing in the '70's. Then wet it all over again with water and took some of the colour out randomly with kitchen paper to get the mixed colour. Let it dry naturally.
Assembled card - Added some real sand from our beach, with some texture paste and masking tape.  Coloured the sky with DI ink and hand made cloud masks. Added the colour to sea with Versamark and Perfect Pearls, and also the surfboards. Turquoise card on left was coloured from cheesecloth stamps above and added some more colour after embossing piece, I added some more inks to highlight. Only needed a third of cheesecloth which was dyed, it was folded over three times. Happy Birthday was stamped in Versafine on cork, and clear embossed.
Loads of shimmer on this card....

Hi Shaz, wow what a great card, so many elements to look at, cheesecloth and embossing add great interest and texture. I thought the sand looked real! Time to batten down the hatches again for another east coast low... have a great weekend... Megan
