I created the background by putting three shades of Distress Oxide Inks (Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Blue Print Sketch) on to my glass mat, I then spritzed the ink and dragged a piece of white card through the ink till the surface was mainly covered in ink. I used my heat gun to dry it before commencing stamping.
For this card I have used Lavinia Stamps throughout the project, starting by stamping "Sebastian" the seahorse in Versafine Clair "Medieval Blue" ink. I used the same ink to stamp the "Sea Urchins".
I masked the seahorse and the urchins and then used the "Marine Kelp" stamp with Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink. I coloured the kelp with "Peeled Paint" Distress Oxide, applied with a paint brush. At the same time, I created reeds swaying in the background.
I used the "Sea Bubbles" stamped in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink, adding some white highlights to the bubbles, the seahorse and the urchins using a white Signo pen.
