What's Under the Sea?

I had a lot of fun playing with some
 old and new product for this challenge.
Hostess for our Word Week at Just Us Girls is Sharyn
choosing WATER.
Before I made my card I had played around with a few
water scenes which landed up in the bin.
This is when I decided to get out some inky messy items
to try my hand at something quite different.
As some of you know I recently spent time
with crafty friends at a Craft Show and this is where
I bought a few of the products I used here.
Gesso Paste
Texture Pastes
Sparkle Medium
White Embossing Enamel for the bubbles
Glossy Accents - water spots
Shells and cotton from my stash.

Now pop over to Our Blog to see what
our August Guest Colleen Foelker
and my talented Team Mates have created.
I hope you will have time to join us
this week.

Thanks for dropping in

It's Sketch Time at 'The House'

Being the end of the Month it is
Sketch time over at The House that Stamps Built.
As you can see I have flipped it and
matched it fairly well.
I wanted to try and make a scene using
a few Repeat Impression stamps
These are
The chair - 3415I
Clouds - 3403F
(hard to see as I sponged over them)
Gulls in Flight - 3412C.
Card stock is a dark brown
and a lighter brown for matting.
Embossed background.
My little scene was sponged with
various inks depicting sun sand and surf
with a touch of white on the waives.
Added some seaweed grasses from GKD
The chair I coloured and added touches of white
for a distressed look.
Finished off with trimming
a brad and the sentiment
is from Altenew.
So that is it for me this month at The House.
Thanks for dropping in.
