Seaside Tag for Happy Daze

For my next project as Guest Designer on ~{Happy Daze}~ I made a tag using a lot of the stamps from the ~{Beyond the Sea}~ stamp plate by Artistic Outpost.

I started off making some backgrounds with Distress Inks, one with Broken China and Bundled Sage and the other with Fired Brick and Spiced Marmalade. These were stamped on and torn to fit the layers on the tag. There was a lot of shuffling of pieces until they fitted into place!

The stamped images were coloured with Copics and cut out and the shells have had their edges inked to help them stand out.

I inked up a tag and doodled a border then layered everything with silicone glue to give it more dimension adding string, charms and ribbons.
