Forgotten Friday 59- Turtally Cute!
Hi Folks, well it's Friday again, I don't know where that week went. I've been to my Daughter's helping her to pack ready for a house move. She is moving from Student accomodation, as she has now finished University. She found out this week that she had achieved a 2:1 in her degree, which she was over the moon about. We are very proud of her.
I have made a card today incorporating some lovely stamps designed by a Canadian designer Ryn I have been sitting on these stamps for a little while, too busy to use them, but I knew exactly how I wanted to make this card. I decided to go ahead and use them for a Forgotten Friday project, as it was the only way that I would find time to use them!
I started by making a background using Ecoline inks on watercolour paper, and dropping sea salt onto the paper while it was still wet. The salt makes beautiful patterns in the ink. I make these backgrounds a lot, as every one is different. Once the background was dry, I brushed the salt away, and stamped the seaweed stamp along the bottom using blue and green Archival ink. I stamped the water droplets stamp a couple of times across the page, after planning where the little turtle would be placed.
I stamped the turtle onto white card a couple of times, and then coloured the image with Polychromos pencils.
Thanks for stopping by, xx
