Hi, everyone! This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from a Rock Art Pinterest Board.....it was so tough to choose, but I finally settled on this awesome photo! I bought this cool sea turtle stamp by Gray Wolf Graphics several months ago at the Indy stamp show and haven't had a chance to use it. I dug through my box of misc stamps and found this Hero Arts sentiment which I haven't used in years. I started by stamping the turtle in Brilliant Blue on a panel cut with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies; stamped it again on scratch paper to make a mask, and again on white cardstock so the shell could be cut out and popped up. After masking the turtle, I used a stencil to create the background around it. For the bottom panel, I inked up an embossing folder and used it as a stamp for a subtle swirly look without being too busy. Along with the Inspiration Challenge, I will be submitting this to the DTGD17JustWriteDesigns challenge. All of the Dare to Get Dirty challenges' details are a secret, unless you are a Fan Club member!!
Thanks for stopping by!
