Sea frame

Hello bloggers!

Here's my first 'Designs By Ryn' card as an official DT member.... :D
I'm into 'frames' at the moment, I like how I can really focus a dramatic stamp in the centre.  I've used lots of stamps by Ryn on this card, Sea Bubbles, School of Fish and the Spiral Shell.  The 'imagination' is from Visible Image's 'Free your imagination' set.  I made the frame with watercolour paper, and my fav technique - tombow pens and water. I made little pearls in the sea bubbles with Liquid Pearls, and added a bit of glitter with Waterfall Stickles.


I hope you are all having a great day, thanks for visiting!  Please leave me a comment to say Hi... xx

Love the frame and the little clusters of sea bubbles.Did you mask the bubbles or just not ink the whole stamp? x

Wendy McCarthy said...

Hi Barbara, you get two stamps in the pack, one large and one little cutie that I used on this card. xx

Hey Wendy :)The shell looks so classy embossed in gold over black. I like how you have the centre clean and elegant and the border painting-like. Usually you see framed cards done the opposite way.
