Under the Sea Triptych with Topflight Stamps

Hello there!! Today I have an ocean themed triptych to share with you. It's a piece of home decor that is going to sit on a shelf in my entryway for the summer. =)

Here's a little closer look of each panel:

Here's a little how-to for the background:

I had the set of chipboard cards languishing in my stash. I'm glad I could finally use them! I first base coated them with Paper Artsy Fresco Chalk Paint, Caribbean Sea. I added a bit of texture over the top by lightly brayering Bora Bora paint over the top when it was dry.

Next I stamped the Seaside Word Block stamp onto the panels using Sea Glass Fresco Paint. Be sure to immediately clean your stamp!! The paint dries quickly. I added pieces of washi tape over the top. It's hard to see in the photo, but over the top of all of that, I stenciled it using the Fibres stencil and Fresco Metallic Glaze Paint. It shows when the light hits it.

I stamped the mermaids and fish using the Lavinia stamps (see below). After that I stamped all the sea creatures and coral onto watercolor paper, painted it, and fussy cut all them all out to apply to the panels. I glued on some Classic Pearls to give it a bit of undersea bling.

Thanks for stopping by! Below is a list of supplies I used. Be sure to check out the Topflight Stamps blog for more inspiration. There is always something fun to see there!
