Blue & green seascape

Hi everyone, I hope you're having a good week.
 I'm so glad it's just a few more days 'til the weekend!

I misted this tag with dylusions inks and sprayed on some watered down  tarnished brass distress stain for a light shimmer. ( I was trying to clear the blocked nozzle and thought the tinted water was too good to waste lol!)

The starfish have sand texture paste spread lightly on them then I dabbed on a few distress inks. I stamped the sentiment onto tissue paper and attached with glue n seal. A tiny bit of the paper still shows but I think it's ok.

The seahorse is coloured with distress inks, painted over with distress clear rock candy crackle paint.

I'm linking up to the challenge at Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media where the theme is to use water.

At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday the theme is a" bit o green".

The greenery is diecut from snippets of green cardstock, so I'm also visiting the snippets playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop
