Happy Tuesday stamping friends! Today I’m back with a new challenge I issued at The Cat’s Pajamas, and I’ve called it Water. There are so many fun ways you can go with this theme....and TCP has lots of great stamps with water themes, or ice themes, snow themes....or you can go with a watercolouring theme too.
I decided to do an under-water/ocean theme with this great set from TCP called Seas the Birthday. I stamped the fun little octopus onto watercolour paper and used my Inktense pencils to give him some purple and bluey-green, with a yellow candle.
For the background I took some re-inkers (Wild Wasabi, Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay) and washed in an oceany background with a waterbrush on a 4 1/8 x 5 1/4 inch piece of watercolour paper. Then I took a stitched die, cut a frame from the panel and then flipped the outer frame 180 degrees. The inside of the frame is sunk in and the outer frame popped up.
For some seaweed accent I used the TCP CutUps die, Leaf Scroll, tucking it into the frame, then adding a couple of enamel dots and baker’s twine for accent.
Here are the details about the challenge:
