By the sea card for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

I'm here with another card for The Rubber Buggy.

I had a blast with this card, using lots of different techniques. I used distress ink on watercolor paper for my background and then I dropped some water randomly to create the look of pools behind my stamped image.

I stamped my Pearl Tilda on super smooth Neenah cardstock, my go to paper for copic coloring and carefully fuzzy cut her to place on my background. In order to get all the details from the stamp with the bubbles I also stamped her on to the background. Saving me some time with the scissors. I also stamped some beautiful seashells on watercolor paper and used distress ink and water to color them.

I then gave them a bit of shimmer with my wink of stella and that really made the image pop. I  believe that the distress ink somewhat reacted with the stella marker. But I can't say that for sure.
