Hello everyone, I have had great fun playing with the new stamps recently released from Chocolate Baroque and have a project with a difference to show you today.
I have incorporated a bit of Zentangle with the Steampunk Funk Fish and Steampunk Sea World stamp sets. I started my card by stamping the scenery section onto the bottom left hand corner of the background, and then adding the bubble machine. I joined the two images together with some hand drawn lines using a permanent black pen, and created a sandy floor. I drew some plants using various tangles, namely variations of Verdigogh, Falz, and Flux. I then stamped some jellyfish, seahorses and more bubbles, partially stamping the bubble machine image. I coloured everything with a mixture of Inktense pencils and watercolour pencils, blending with water brushes. I added detail on the metallic areas with a gold pen and a charcoal glitter pen. Finally, I added Glossy Accents to the bubbles.
I have a bonus tag to show you here on my blog, not posted on the Design Team blog. I created a wrinkle free Distress background, adding some over stamping using a texture stamp which I then spritzed with water afterwards, to give it slightly hazy feel. I then dried the background completely. I stamped the cog background stamp, and masked this off, adding some additional seaweed.
I stamped and embossed a couple of sea horses onto the tag using silver embossing powder and Versamark. I added a sentiment from the Seadragon stamp set. All of the images were coloured with Distress Markers, except for the cogs, which I coloured using a brush filled with gold ink.
