I See Seashells

I See Seashells is the name of my new ATC Card I just finished. The image was bought from Lauretta's Digital Stamps over at our shop I Did it Creations/shop

I first used twinkling h20's on my background. I used a small flat paintbrush to just brush it on in an angle trying to get an ocean type feeling. I colored my image with WaterColor Pencils using a very fine paintbrush to blend. It's hard to see because at the very end of creating it I took Mod Podge and covered the whole ATC in it to give it a sheen.I purposely let my paintbrush pick up some of the blue from the twinking h2o's to go right over the mermaids body.  The seashells I googled and found them in Google Images.I printed them off in Greyscale. I love working with twinking h2o's. They really have a twinkle to them. I want to learn how to use them more in my projects.

We still have that 50% off sale at the shop on all our Digital Stamps. Our Designers have put so much Inventory into the shop there is quite a selection of Digi's for all sorts of Card and Paper Crafts Projects.
