Imagine a rusted ship / submarine at the bottom of the ocean but still with wonderful things happening around it.. :
So for this card I created a take on the industrial metal technique that I love so much and added plenty of rust. I wanted the feel of a sunken, abandoned port hole..not sure I pulled it off but I am pleased with the rusty effect at least .
I created a rusty porthole for the delicate seahorses to swim in...using distress powders and idea-ology fasteners.
I added some dyed seam binding to tie in the soft blue seahorses and a muse token , dabbed with distress paint.
Some gears and cogs....they get everywhere you know!
And there you have my nautical make , there is plenty of time to play along as the challenge lasts all month and all the details can be found here .
The supplies I have used are listed below and any questions drop me a line and I will try and help .

here are a few sneaky peaks :
there are lots more and all can be found here ...
keep those fingers inky!
I started with the new motif resist paper and it is gorgeous xx I played with some sofetr colours of stain for me to create the background., added to mdf plaque and edged with dried marigold distress paint, inking edges when dry with walnut stain.
For the foal point this gorgeous picture from the found relatives pack, just love this...I scuffed distressed and inked.
I added plenty of idea-ology on the piece and some of the great rub ons . film strip always seem to go well with these photos. I dyed some seam binding and scrunched to dry , in a really soft colour.
I added flowers , made suing tattered floral die with idea-ology centres and die cut flourishes.
I love how the motif paper flourishes look too against these softer colours. More idea-ology in the form of a muse token smudged with treasure gold.
I added this fab metal embellishment which was coated with glue and seal and then rock candy before adding paint and stains.
These are not colours I usually use buut I am really pleased, for once, with how this turned out!

I then spritzed each with water, let it soften the card slightly, scrunched up crinkling the petals and left to dry overnight.
I then carefully unfolded and shaped each petal using a pokey tool and my fingers. Now for the centres and how to keep them in the basket! This proved a little tricky! In the base layer I threaded through some paper coated wire.
For the top 2 layers I added a mini gear and fastened these 2 layers together and then glued the top 2 layers into the bottom one..
