  • Waves at Kanagawa

    What a fantastic Inspiration challenge today at SCS! I loved all the examples, but I chose Mt Fuji & Wave. Mainly, because I love the image and actually own it in two sizes. This is the small one.

    I stamped the image (Museum Stamps) on matte coat paper w/ the coal ink, then heat set it. I used a water brush and various colors of reinkers to water color the image. I added the ocean spray w/ a white gel pen. I did a very thin edging w/ a black marker then attached it to a teal layer. I stamped the kanji (Stampendous) on the side.

    Layered a bunch of times, alternating w/ the tangerine and black then finally onto a teal card. The ribbon was added somewhere in the middle of the layers and I added faux brads (made w/ 2 sizes of hole punches). The top three layers were cut w/ Nestabilities rectangles that I resized.

    Stamps: Museum Stamps, Stampendous
    Paper: white matte coat, teal, tangerine, black
    Ink: AP coal, various Adironack reinkers
    Accessories: black ribbon, hole punches, black marker, white gel pen, Nestabilites rectangles set
