Merchant ship


Supplies and notes:

  • Strathmore watercolor paper scrap
  • Acrylic block inked with Faded Jeans and Broken China DI and spritzed
  • Hero Arts wave pattern background stamp inked with Abandoned Coral DOx and sprayed prior to stamping
  • I carved the little Chinese merchant ship... I looked a picture up after I carved out, and I wish I'd carved three sails instead of two... 
  • Merchant ship inked 26th Archival in Jet Black
  • Sentiment written with a Cricut pen that happened to be in reach...
  • Watercolor panel popped up with 3M foam tape

I'll share this at the following challenges-- I'm making up for lost time!:
