So here is my make :
(now i may have stretched coastal a little...but here she is ):
So I struggled with this theme a lot! and decided to go down the sea kind of colours and create some textures too.. So I swiped some embossing dabber across some torn corrugated card and embossed using fab verdigris embossing powder. This became the base for my tag to be attached too.
The tag itself was spritzed using homemade mica sprays using distress re-inkers and perfect pearls mica powder in mini mister bottles. i then over stamped using this fab fancy flourish from Tim Holtz.
not sure if you can see the mica but I promise it is there! I also added some stamping using bubble wrap stamp..now onto the fun bit...
i wanted to create a watery effect and used my marvellous melt pot...now Hels has given me my melt pot mojo back..it has a permanent place on my spare desk...well the one i have kind of taken over...oops...and so it is always out and ready for the off! I melted some clear UTEE and then added some melt art colour ink to add a touch of blue...but as the clear ambered it went this yummy green...for which I can take no credit..
I drizzled some on to my craft sheet and left to cool and then had marvellous fun dunking my shells to give a hopefully watery feel?! well love the way their textures and colours are encased in this glossy globs anyway! (globs being a technical term for something I am sure!?)
a smattering of sand and some rusty wire and there you have it...make sure you pop across and see my fab team mates makes who have some amazing and much more coastal makes...
sorry this is late been at the hospital with James and will fill you in later x
have a fun and inky day!
