This is my card for the challenge.
The background was then coloured using various shades of distress inks on top of which I painted various shades of Twinkling H2o's, to give a reflective appearance and this also reminded me of the reflective nature of water! The texture popped off the page and reminded me of the beautiful corals in the Oceans.....so there you have it....I knew just the theme I wanted to create.I chose 2 stamps from Designs By Ryn, the swirls and seahorse. I stamped the swirls directly onto the background and for some extra texture added several colours of Flower Soft. The seahorse was stamped and coloured using the twinkling H2O's again. and cut out and raised using foam pads.
Finally the background was layered onto turquoise and coral coloured card.
Many of the items I have used are available from The Craft Den as are all your staple supplies they have a great range so do pop by there. As usual the Design team have showcased some lovely projects on the blog for your inspiration.
