Inspired by a Wooden Seaside Sign -- Take Three

Recently, I found some fun "seaside-themed" wooden signs on Pinterest.
They were great inspiration to make some cards
using my new Reverse Confetti Seaside stamp set.
 I shared one of them here for the Reverse Confetti June New Release Countdown
and another one here for the Reverse Confetti New Release Blog Hop
and thought I'd share a third one today.
 
Here's one of the signs that inspired me:
 
 
 I loved the ombre backgrounds, which reminded me a of piece
of Papertrey Ink patterned paper that I had in my stash.
 
 
I decided that instead of leaving the silhouettes in white, however,
that I would stamp them in Wplus9 Hayride using my Seaside stamps
on their coordinating Seaside Confetti Cuts.
I added some dry brushing with cream coloured acrylic paint
to add to the "weathered wooden sign" look.
 
 
I stamped the sentiment using "Waving Hello" from Seaside
and "New Baby" from Whole Lotta Happy.

 

  
  
 
 
Thanks for looking!

I love the sea creatures in yellow, Leigh, and adding that paint really makes it look like weathered wood.

So adorable! Love those little sea critters for a new baby card! And the ombre background is awesome. Love how the dry brushed paint brings out a woodgrain look for that weathered wooden sign you were going for!
