Deep Sea Adventures

 Greetings friends!  It is release day at Technique Junkies.  Check out this Deep Sea Collage stamp!  I  really like this stamp, but it was a little bit outside my comfort zone.   

This background stamp is so unique and has so much detail that I didn't want to cover it all up.  I decided to use use distress inks to add color to my white cardstock. I tried to make splashes of color randomly all over my A2 panel.  I used the black soot to sponge the edges.  It helps pull the focus towards the octopus. 

My second card I wanted to play with Shimmering Bliss sprays. This was my first try at using them and they worked really well.  If you haven't played with them, they are pigment (color) with a touch of glitter mixed in a bottle.  You spray them on cardstock.  You can mix colors and they blend to create a shimmering background.  

After both backgrounds were created I used versafine to stamp the Deep Sea Collage onto each panel. I finished them up with the Soothe your soul sentiment. 

I hope you are able to do something that makes your soul happy today.  
Hugs until next time,
