Hi you all! Another weekend is over, time flies! It is still ice cold here, and very windy, so a good time to stay home and play. The challenge over at Artful times is to use alcohol ink. My inks seem to have diminished, at the moment I just have blue, yellow and gold. Anyway, I had a lot of fun dripping and blowing the inks in lots of layers to make my under-water landscapes. When the were finished I doodled round some of the drips and drops with a gold gel-pen. This is the first one before....
and then afterwards. This one has been stamped with fishes which I embossed with white EP. I added some underwater flowers, some dew-drops as bubbles, and a real mini star-fish. I matted it with black card and green miri-card.
The second one before.....
and afterwards. I have again outlined the drips with my gold pen, and then added flowers and leaves (Prima) in turquoise. The hand, called a Chamsa, is made from metal, and the stones and decorations are bedded in resin. The Hebrew letters spell 'Chai', which means 'Life' and is used as one of the names of God. I have matted the card with a turquoise blue cardstock.
I am also linking to Simon Says Stamp and show, where the theme this week is water.
I will be back tomorrow with some happy mail received from Donna and Yvonne!
Have a good day, take care and keep warm, and thanks a lot for coming by!
