Waterfront Stamp Set with Wood Textures paper by Stampin' Up! - Susan Wong, 2018 Artisan Design Team

- Stamp off on scrap paper first and then straight on the Wood Textures designer paper for a subtle tree-line.
- Mask part of a sentiment with washi tape before inking up your stamp, peel off the washi then stamp on your cardstock. I mixed these two sentiments to make a new one:
- For the globe: I did a light Pool Party wash for the sea first and let dry. The land was done freehand with Call Me Clover and an aqua painter, copied from a globe on the internet. Finally I splattered on some Pool Party marker.
