Eureka Stamps Challenge #195 Anything Goes

Eureka Stamps' Challenge theme this week is 

Anything Goes

As many of you might know already, I am taking the Wanderlust online classes. The teacher a few weeks ago was Andy Skinner, one of my favorite artist. He feature a dry-brush technique using a shadow box frame from a kit. I felt immediately in love with this technique, so I decided to use the 28301 Riverwalk  image from Eureka Stamps and do this technique to a very simple wooden frame from Michaels.
This was my first frame, which I made it for my son's teacher, who is leaving the school as end-off-the year gift:

The image was watercolored using H2O shimmering watercolors. 

some close-ups:

I used all this materials for the frame:

 Creative Embellishments laser cut shipboard from their mixed media kit:  

and some firebrick distress paint from Ranger.

I had so much fun doing this technique that I made a second frame, using a word for the shipboard embellishment I used:

I am loving this technique and I think my second trial went better too. 

Some closeups:

I would love to enter the following challenges:
Inspiration: bird, Road runner and Color combination

Wood: Frame, Word: Explore, something Wild: Andy's technique

Good luck in the Eureka Stamp Challenge,

Vicky Tovar
