My offering is a recycled cardboard box entitled,
"Under the Water Under the Sea, catching Fishes for my Tea"
Old Timey Frog has been crackled and then inked with distress to show the cracks, a little glitter is good for you! The bubbles and fish have glaze on them too.
I made it this way.............
Smushalluam is just one layer painted in DI and also coloured with Copics, I find this gives the colouring more depth. I masked her and the background is a circles mask. The text is from Shakespeare.
The box was inked around all the edges with Vintage Photo and on a separate card I made the background with Brusho's ( thanks go to Eileen and Sarn for introducing me to these brilliant paints) Then Old Timey Frog was stamped onto card coloured with Copics and cut out, I did the same with Smushallaum and Octopet and then adhered them to the box. The fish, I drew and they got the same treatment!
Thank you for joining me here today and why not have a go at the challenge over at the Stampotique designer's blog, you never know you could win the $30 for stamps! Hugs Gay xx
