Looking out from an underwater cave!

Hello everyone!

I've had another play in my art journal... an underwater theme this time, all with beautiful stamps from Designs by Ryn!  I'll list them at the end of this post for you.  The background is made with dylusions inks.


The edges of the cave are actually black, but unfortunately they look a sort of brown colour because of the light when I took the photo.
Here's a list of the stamps I used from Designs by Ryn:

Butterfly fish
Rising bubbles
Seaweed set
Kelp
Seahorse
School of fish

I'm entering this page in the Make it Monday challenge.
Thanks for visiting my blog, I hope you enjoyed looking at my pictures!  big hugs to you all xxxxx

Wendy I absolutely LOVE this one!!!!! I've never seen anything like this done with the sea creature stamps. Great idea with the cave! Love the placement of all of the stamps you used as well. They look like they are supposed to fit together that way. Very natural integration. You're brilliant! Thank you sooooo much :)

Wow Wendy, this is gorgeous! It has a kind of transparency and I must say that the brown, instead of the real colour black, looks great! I am in awe.....warm greet Mirandaxx

I just found your blog from Ryn's page .I am really amazed at the bubbles.Is that just ink or did you add a clear lacquer such as crystal effects over the stamped image? Beautiful card.

Wendy McCarthy said...

Hi Terry, thanks for taking the time to look at my blog! Yes, the bubbles are just stamped onto the page with black ink, then I removed a little of the colour inside the bubbles by painting with water. A touch of white pen at the top and bottom of each bubble and you're done! So glad you liked my journal page, I hope I've inspired you to try Ryn's fabulous stamps! xx

Terry D. said...

Hi Wendy,
Thanks for answering me .I never would of thought that it was just ink. You have inspired me to try. You are very gifted..Have a Great Day.xx Terry D.
