Live The Moment
When I'm playing with inks or sprays (or even actually making something with a purpose) many times I get extra pieces because I blot up extra ink either from the craft sheet or from the paper I'm working on and I save these papers for future project... I know the beginning of this background is from that. I stamped the leaves along the bottom. Then thought I needed more "something" in the background and so I took a plastic canvas circle, layed it on and sprayed a corner and then sprayed another corner. I love how that turned out... it's like movement radiating from the fish swimming through the water. Now the fish... when Suzanne mailed me the new Quietfire Design stamps she put an outline fish sticker on the back of the envelope... I carefully peeled it off and then used it on this atc. After sticking it down I colored in the fish using first Tombow marker and then either Glaze (red and orange) or Souffle pens (yellow). I also added light grey marker around the outside edge of the fish. I made air bubbles using Ranger's Glossy Accents and then decided I didn't want them to just be clear and so I used white Enamel Accents over each one. Black pen squiggles and dots around the edges. Live the moment words are cut from Tim's Words to Say.
I am also entering this in the current Frilly and Funky challenge which is Stencils and Masks.
