Life in a seashell


Summer of colours has inspired me to use three colours, here's the first one that I missed, 2 blue and 1 green. I won some stamps from Stamplorations and got this lovely set as an extra gift, the owner is very kind and helpful.

Other challenges:
Less is more: Life's a beach


Materials used:
Watercolour paper, embossing ink and Weathered wood distress embossing powder, Stamplorations image and sentiment, Moss Green Aqua Marker, regal blue Citadel colour and Lagoon Blue Cosmic shimmer, Itsy Bitsy tiny sequins.

First I stamped and embossed, then I added some water onto the image, then the colours, the darkest first and the lightest at last.  The colours mix nicely and give that lovely effect like that. Then some splatters of Cosmic Shimmer.

Thank you so much for visiting, it's much appreciated! I've been having a quiet weekend as we went to a concert at Friday evening and it was sooooo cold and damp that I caught a little summer cold. It was only 10 degrees and it's supposed to be summer?! I'm feeling much better and I've thoroughly enjoyed some crafting indoors :)

Love and hugs
Maarit
