Having said that, the plate of stamps were a pleasure to use. For this card, I have used their "Sea Turtle (PI019)" which is part of their "Nautical Series".
I started by using stamping the turtle image with Wow! Embossing Ink Pad (I used the "Clear, ultra slow drying" one) and Wow! powder. I used the Super Fine Metallic Silver shade. I then heated the stamped image with the heat gun to create a raised outline image.
I used Distress Oxide Inks applied with a wet paint brush to create the background scene. I used the following shades: Tumbles Glass, Cracked Pistachio, Twisted Citron, Shabby Shutters and Salty Ocean.
Once the background was try and flattened, it gets a little distorted in shape due to the wet surface. I moved on to stamp the weeds. I used two shades of Versafine Clair Inks (Verdant and Shady Lane), I also used a Distress Oxide Ink in the shade of "Peeled Paint".
I coloured the weeds and the turtle image in using Arteza Brush Pens, they are beautifully soft to use, very much like using a brush rather than a felt pen.
Finally, I added some white high-lighted areas using a Signo Pen and adhered some Nuvo sequins in the shade of "Diamond" to replicate air bubbles.
