Going Under The Sea At That's Crafty Challenge Blog

Hello again, today sees the start of a new challenge over at That's Crafty Challenge Blog and for the next fortnight we'd like to see your creations featuring an Under The Sea theme.
The Design Team have really rocked this challenge as I said earlier and you really should hop on over to see for some fabulous creations.
Here's my inspiration which I hope you like.

This is actually a greyboard wall hanging even if it looks more like a tag!

I covered the panel with a scrap of leftover Gelli print paper which was made with blue and green Paper Artsy acrylics and my 8x10 Gelli plate. I had applied the paint a little too thickly so I misted on some water and this paper was the result - serendipity strikes again! I sandwiched the ribbon in between to form the hanger.

I then used the Bubbles Dinky Stencil by That's Crafty to apply bubbles with an olive and a white pencil to draw inside the stencil shapes.

I stamped the Deep Red Seahorse with VersaFine Olympia Green ink and heat embossed it with clear powder. I then painted the image with acrylic paints and cut it out. I also stamped an image from the Carabelle Studio Ombrelines Aux Pistils Par Azoline stamp set, stamping twice with VersaFine Spanish Moss and Satin Red inks then clear embossed as before and painted them with green and purple paints. I then cut out just the central area of the green image and glued this on top of the purple one. It was inspired by a picture of a sea anemone I saw in the TV Times.

I made the seaweed fronds from Gelli print scraps using a branch die and glued all the elements on as you see.

Hope you can join us for a chance at a fab prize of a £20 voucher for the online shop where you'' be spoilt for choice.

Have a great day and a lovely weekend.
