I'd like to be under the Sea

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Happy Sunday all, I sure had a ball yesterday afternoon playing with my paints, inks and stamps.  I played with Sheena Douglass' A little bit Scenic Sea Shells, Hidden Stars and Underwater Angels stamps.  I also spent time watching the shows from America and cutting out my new stamps from Chocolate Baroque, so I can play today.

Here is today's card for you!


Recipe

1. Cream 18 x 25 cm card which I have matted and layered green card onto the base.
2. The second layer is the reverse side of Centura Pearl card which I have given the Ombre treatment using Distress ink in 3 shades of blue, sorry I did this a while ago and can't remember the colours.  Onto the card I stamped the 2 seaweed stamps with Pebeo Iridescent Blue Green and Green Yellow, I then stamped the seahorse with the Green Yellow, when I painted the stamp I gave it some texture with the brush which turned out really well once it was stamped.
3.  Onto a piece of acetate I stamped the 2 fishes with Silk Paint and then stamped over with Versamark and then WOW Silver Embossing Powder, I then stamped the bubbles with Adirondak Snowcap.  I then attached the acetate which I cut 2 cms wider to wrap around the blue card.
4. On a sheet of Supersmooth card I stamped the seashells with Versafine and embossed with WOW Clear Embossing Powder, then painted with the above Pebeo iridescent paints cut out and arranged onto the card with Pinflair.


Thank you for stopping by Today
