ATB Retro Beach
Guest Designer Craftyfield here with an inspiration piece around the Retro Beach set.
Summer is nearly there and I am longing for a beach holiday so this is my way of getting there earlier!
Since a cube has six sides, it is almost enough to show off all the stamps in the Retro Beach plate In fact I only left out one stamp!
On 3 sides I used Brushos and Infusions  powders on top of the stamped images (Versafine black) and on the 3 others I used coloured inks (Versacraft) as well as the black Versafine on an untouched watercolour paper.
After drying and flattening the squares as much as I could, I applied several coats of DecoArt Ultra Matte varnish to protect them.
Then they were glued (I used Mod Podge for that) to the MDF cube parts. You can pop over to my blog if you want to know more on how I put together the cube.
On the left you can see the 6 sides before I made up the cube.
And a look at the other side of the cube:
I hope you will like this project as much as I enjoyed making it! And the best part is I can now look at beach scenes and dream of summer...
 Infusions are a mix of walnut crystals and dye colours, similar to the Bistres powders.
