I meant to take some progress photos but as usual I got carried away creating and only managed one of the background. I added colour to the tag using distress inks, then brushed over some clear gesso before adding texture paste through a stencil. The gesso stops the paste taking on colour from the inky background which sometimes I like but on this occasion I didn't want that look. I added stamping and little paint bubbles and splatters.
I inked along the bottom with brushed twig DI before adding bead gel. I then dropped rusty hinge distress re-inker onto the gel and mixed in by dabbing with a brush, this lifted some of the bead gel creating a more random finish.
Don't forget we are a stamping challenge so we do need to see rubber/acrylic stamping on your project. To qualify for the winner’s prize we especially need to see that the stamping is the focal point on the project and that the stamping follows the format of the theme.
NO DIGI STAMPS ARE ALLOWED …but you may use digi downloads for enhancement of your projects … please remember that the main focal point must be STAMPING.
The winner of each challenge will receive a very generous voucher of $20 for Flonz’s Store
I'm looking forward to seeing lots of beautiful 'under the sea' creations'....Happy crafting....Esther
