Maritime Things To Do

Summer is the time for dipping into a water's edge and adventures along the shore whether it's a river, lake or ocean. Hopefully, you've had some downtime to experience that for yourselves. I was fortunate to be on vacation with my sisters early this summer where one of us was finally able to experience the ocean for the first time! This ties in with my project today, three sisters means three - Artist Trading Coins and three inspiration phrases!

I hope you'll be inspired today with this little project! Here we go! I'll give you a few photos to see how my coins came together and then grab your Technique Junkies stamps and supplies for a set of coins made by you! It's our current challenge at Technique Junkies

  1. Make whimsical background paper. Mine was simple to make using a stamp positioner so I could add each color at a time, but you can add all the colors in one pass with markers, right?
Stamp: Tidepool
Ink: Memento Summer Sky, Teal Zeal, and Elderberry
Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Cardstock
  1. Cut out 2-1/2 inch circles and stamp a layer of a simple repeat pattern by pressing only a portion of the paper onto the inked stamp. You will get a mixed media style impression.
Stamp: Anchors Background
Ink: Memento Elderberry
Circle Cutter (not shown)
  1. Stamp focal elements and add shading with Nuvo Mousse around them.
Stamp: Play Like A Pirate
Nuvo Mousse: Pacific Teal and Pure Platinum
Pen: Signo White Pen
Ink: Versafine Clair Nocturne (not shown)
  1. Stamp phrases or words onto white cardstock and glue to coins.
  2. Add glitter marker details around coin in dots, dashes or any combination.
  3. Add pen detail around words and glitter markers with a black and white pen.

Stamp: Things I Want To Do
Nuvo Glitter Markers: Blu Bliss, Imperial Blue, and Purple Passion
