I've purchased some beautiful new stamps from a Canadian Designer (see Designs By Ryn links all around these posts) and I'm having a great time playing. I'll finish more projects and post pics and tutorials and details of the designer over the this space cause she's fab!

Right, here's how it came together: I started with a square background of white Centura Pear.  I scrunched up copy paper, pulled it back into a flat but crumpled shape, loaded up my brayer with Waterfall Big & Juicy ink, rolled the brayer across the scrunched paper which gave a texture pattern on the brayer, then I rolled the brayer across the white card to give the watery effect. I stamped & embossed Ryn's Wanda onto the background, coloured in using the Promarkers listed above, added highlight with stickles. I chopped around the fins before die cutting with a circle die so that the fins were outside of the die to give the decoupage look. I then die cut turquoise card with a scalloped circle, highlighted with Stickles around the edge and then added these layers onto a shaped card which I'd also stamped with Ryn's seaweed stamps and inked around the edges with Waterfall.
Great watery fun!
