In recent weeks, I have been experimenting with sponged backgrounds but this is the first real sea scene: Sahara Sand in the foreground and Lost Lagoon at the top. How to make it look a bit more like the sea? I used one of the stamps from Gorgeous Grunge and Illuminate ink to give some ripples then freehanded using a silver gel pen to give some more definition and movement. Perhaps need to invest in a white gel pen for the future, although the silver gave a more subtle effect, that I was happy with.
