Under the Sea


I made this ATC for a swap over at the Stamp Shack. I used some new techniques to me and I love how it turned out.

You start with a white piece of cardstock ... it eventually turns blue! I stamped the seahorse using a retired TAC stamp set (one of my first and my favorite). I then colored him with my copics. I then stamped the air bubbles. I then stamped the green seaweed from the TAC Ocean Buddies set and then covered it with clear embossing powder and set it with the embossing gun. I colored/covered the air bubbles and seahorse with my Versamark marker. I applied clear embossing powder to those items and then set those with the embossing gun.

I sponged blue all over the background (3 shades) and then stamped the blue seaweed with Cote D'Azure blue ink. Once you are done with this you take a paper towel and rub all of the ink off of the embossed images.

It turns out wonderful and it is kind of masked. The other cool thing is that some of your images are shiny and glossy from the embossing powder while others are not ... gives a lot of depth to the images and project.

Love It!! How much fun is this - and we have the new sea horse to play with. Now off to find some grassey and bubbly stuff. Great job with coloring.
