Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and Glenda has chosen ocean creatures as the theme.
Of course you can always play along with the option of anything goes as long as it's for a birthday.
Our party guest is Deepti Aggarwal and she and my team mates have some wonderful inspiration for you, so I hope you can play along.
This circle and fish is a new to me die and I cut it from a scrap of card smooshed with blue inka gold.
I coloured the greenery, coral and urchin with oxide inks leftover on my finger daubers.
The fish are diecut from some silver card.
I thought it needed something else so created a background by spritzing some distress oxide sprays and water onto some card. Got it too wet, so placed another piece of card on top and smoothed it down to soak up some of the colour.
When I pulled them apart I had 2 pieces with some interesting patterns!
Finally I covered a diecut starfish in versamark and then a range of embossing powders to get a textured look.
Here's a closer look at the shimmer.
I'm linking up to these challenges:
