Seascape

Hello! I want to quickly share a summery card today!  


I created the background using the Floating Alcohol Ink technique, shown in this YouTube Video.  It is easy and fast to do! You just have to account for drying time.  Then I just stamped my Turtle Seascape over top, framed it and I was about done.


I thought about sea turtles and how they have a long journey across the ocean to reach their nesting sites, and that is why I used the sentiment, Life is a Journey.

Supplies: Just for Fun Rubber Stamps Sea Turtle Seascape, Sentiments three, Archival Black ink, regular cardstocks, Adirondack alcohol inks in blue and green.

Thanks for stopping by!

(Just for Fun Rubber Stamps will be in Hamburg, NY this weekend, August 26 and 27 at the Stamp, Scrap, Art Tour.  If you are nearby, check the event out here.)

What a great card, and it's so cooling to feel as if I'm sitting on the bottom of the water looking up at this turtle! Thanks for the tutorial link too :)

I must look up this technique, as your background looks really magical and is perfect behind your beautifully stamped scene.
