step by step, #16

For index card #16 in the ICAD challenge I took step by step photos and wanted to share them. The theme this week, optional to use, is MAPS. I took a map of the local waters, ripped it in sections and glued it to a plain blue index card with a glue stick. When I showed this to Steven, he enjoyed that he's been to most of these places via boat! 

Then I wanted something to lightly cover the map, change it slightly. 

I choose Hi Lite Violet Lumiere paint, which gives sheer varied colors in different light.

Then I added a bit of Lumiere Sunset Gold around the edges...

For more depth of color, a weathered wood and peeled paint Distress Stain was rubbed on. 

Lastly, a fish print stamp ( Fred B. Mullett ) was added with permanent black ink.

I looked at the time stamp on my photos & this one took a little longer than 15 minutes. I started at 10:55pm and finished at 11:24pm on June 16, 2014. Still, a quick creative fix that I am reaping the benefits of. Join me?
