Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and Lindsey has chosen the theme, create a scene.
You can always play along with the anything goes birthday option too.
The design team and our party guest, Carol have scenes galore to inspire you, so hope to see you in the gallery!
I used a brushos background for this underwater scene.
Brushos are a pigment powder that explode into colour when you spritz them with water!
You never know what sort of effect you'll get and if you aren't happy with it you can keep spritzing with water and smooshing it on a craft mat to get the effect you do like!
The mermaid was stamped with versafine ink, clear embossed, fussy cut and painted with opal paints.
Hard to capture the shimmer, so here's a closer look.
I added a mat of silver glitter card as the little girl this was for loves sparkles and mermaids!
I'm linking up to these challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday, favourite technique.
Creating inky backgrounds like this is one of my favourite techniques, as is fussycutting!
