Lavinia Stamps "Zelith's Tail" under water scene

This morning I've been having a play with Lavinia goodies, making this under water scene.

I started off with a small section of a gel plate background, I had made some months ago.  This dictated the small size, it's 7cm x 12cm.

I used the Lavinia Stamps "Blue Atoll" Element ink through a Sticker Stencil leaf, part of set 3 of the sticker stencils.

Using Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink, I multi stamped the "Shoal of Fish".   I then used the dangly tenticles from "Jalandhar" the jelly fish to replicate sea weed, stamping it in Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink.

I dusted over the surface using an anti-static pad and then stamped the tail of  "Zelith" the meremaid in Wow! clear embossing ink.  I then coated it with Wow! Super Fine Metallic Silver embossing powder and heat set.

I used lots of droplets of water from a wet paint brush to create the mottled background. Once dry, I then used Derwent Inktense water colour pencils to enhance the colour of the mermaid and also the sea weed.

I used Charming Pink Versafine Clair ink around the edge of the card.  I then used a white gel pen and a silver glitter Signo pen to add extra detail.  Finally sticking three clear domed dots to replicate bubbles.
