Beach... by Stephanie

Hello everyone! Stephanie here to share my Beach Themed Artist Training Coins for this months challenge. I created two ATCoins featuring several Emerald Creek Craft Supplies including stamps and embossing powders. Artist trading coins are 2.5 inches. They are so much fun to make and trade with other artists especially when they are created with amazing Emerald Creek embossing powders!

I began by stamping the seahorse and crab onto watercolor paper and then punching them out with a 2.5 inch circle punch. Afterwards I painted them with some handmade artisan watercolor paints.

After each coin was painted and dry I began adding the good stuff...Dirty Sand EC Baked Texture Embossing Powder! I mean you have to have sand for the beach right?! It amazes me how closely it matches real sand!

A little Deep Sea embossing powder on the seahorse belly to add some depth. I then added some Charred Gold EC Embossing Powder to a real starfish to complete the seahorse coin. 

The crab coin is accented with Chunky Rust, Deep Sea, Dirty Sand and Vintage Beeswax  Embossing Powders. I wish I could get a better photo to show just how awesome and textured this coin is.

I love how the addition of Vintage Beeswax gives it that vintage feel and seals the watercolor to prevent damage. 

All of the embossing powders below where used to create these coins.
