AALL&Create - The Adventure Begins

Hi folks, it's Tuesday and time to share this week's Guest Designer project for AALL&Create. I was inspired by the lighthouse image on the For Him #196 stamp set designed by #Bipasha BK, which  reminded me of all the intrepid adventurers who have set sail from the shores of the UK to travel the world and in bad weather and stormy seas, rely on the lighthouses around our coast to guide them safely home again.

I trimmed Distress Watercolor card to 4.3/4" x 6.3/4" and spritzed generously with water on the textured surface. I spritzed Stormy Sky and Vintage Photo Distress Paints with water and dropped on to the card, allowed it to run around, repeated with more paint and added splatters using the left over paint.
I used the same colours of paint with the Quadrilaterals #52 Stencil to add tone-on-tone detail to the background using a mini round blending tool.
I applied Ranger Opaque Matte Texture Paste through Stencil #39 Lotza Dotz and set aside to dry.
I inked the image from the For Him #196 stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black and stamped on to Idea-ology Plain Collage Paper.
I turned the collage paper over, fixed to my stamp platform using the magnets and painted in the details with Fired Brick, Peeled Paint, Stormy Sky and Vintage Photo Distress Paints.
I traced around the sections of the image I wanted to use with a wet paintbrush, teased them apart with my fingers and fixed on the card using Distress Collage Medium Matte. I added splatters of Black Soot Distress Paint, white highlights on the image using a Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen and Idea-ology Small Talk Stickers.

I added puddles of Distress Collage Medium Matte on the bottom of the card, sprinkled on Prima Art Stones and once they were secure, tinted them randomly with diluted Vintage Photo Distress Paint.
I added Glossy Accents to some of the Texture Paste stencilling and matted the panel on to a 5" x 7" black card blank.
