Firstly I would like to welcome Mariannn Jakobsen to my blog as a new follower - unfortunately I have not been able to find if she has a blog. Thank you for following me Mariann.
This card was for another family member who loves to fish, and I have used that same fish stamp on it. At first glance it is difficult to see, but it is there!
I randomly stamped the image with Versamark ink, and then put perfect pearls,( perfectly pearl) over it! The light catches it beautifully in the photo below
The sentiment was stamped with Faded Jeans DI, using a very old stamp.
The feature part of the card was a die cut I made when I had borrowed a friends die - there is no name in the packet with this one, so I am assuming it is unbranded.
I coloured the panel with Lyra Aqua Crayons then moved the pigment with water. When I was happy with it, I mounted a piece of mixed media paper behind it that had been coloured using Brushos. I love the variations in the colours in the 'sky' area. To give the water some differentiation, I painted it with Iridescent Medium, and then another layer of blue from the crayons. The water ended up with a sheen on it, but not too 'fancy' for a masculine card!
This inside was finished with a strip of Sparkly Green scotch tape.
