Calm .....

I made this card using a 5 x 7 inch white card blank ......

I used a background made with Gelatos & water on white gessoed card. I applied a design through a stencil over this with texture paste and when dry painted the raised areas with Cosmic Shimmer mica paints in a variety of colours in line with the background colours. Pity the mica sheen can't easily be seen in the photo !

I then stamped the Seahorse stamp (Visible Image) on white card with Archival black ink.  This was trimmed out and coloured with Ecoline brush markers in greens and blues with highlights from a white Posca marker before applying on foam pads as shown.

The background with seahorse was them matted on black card and applied to the card base. The sentiment stamps (Visible Image) were stamped in Versafine black ink. trimmed out and coloured with more brush marker before being placed on foam pads as shown.

Final touches were to add a few blue adhesive pearls onto the background .....

  3. A beautiful work of art. Should be framed!

  4. WOw Sid, that background must be stunning IRL - I have some Cosmic Shimmer pastes and they are amazing. A wonderful look to this card with the coloured and textured background.
