I am preparing for a technique's class to be held next weekend and thought I'd give the gel technique a try. I've seen the technique used to create water glasses, plastic bags, vases, etc. but my favorite way to use it is for an underwater aquatic life scene.
The shell, starfish & plant life stamp is from a June Stamp of the Month Club being offered by a local scrapbook store. The seahorse is from SU!Fishy Friends and the sentiment is SU!So Punny. All the images were colored with Prisma pencils. I found this polka-dot embossed designer paper at the same local scrapbook store and it was a PERFECT match for the new SU! In-color: Bermuda Bay. I added touches of Elegant Eggplant for visual contrast (ribbon and punched oval), dots using a white gel pen and 4 little purple gemstones to each corner to finish the card.
If you'd like to try making one of these cards you can find the directions HERE on Splitcoaststampers.
Have a great weekend and until next time -
