As always, after our sketch challenge comes a colour challenge. What a vibrant and interesting mix Joanne has given us!
Perhaps not everyone would see it this way but to me it looked like a marine colourway. Maybe I was unjustly influenced by the new Sea Turtle set that just happened to be on my desk. 😀
I masked off a strip about 4 cm wide and went to town creating an underwater scene. As this stamp set is reversible, I created some wildly waving kelp in Sweet Sorbet, using both sides (and both ends) of the stamp. The water, stamped in Tahitian Tide, I'm really pleased with. I also like the Polished Pink school of fish and the Night of Navy sea urchins.
I scored the edges of the panel with my paper trimmer but I'm not sure if that was actually an enhancement!
I stamped the large turtle in Night of Navy on Basic White, then sponged the edges, first with Night of Navy and then Tahitian Tide. He's popped up on dimensionals over the watery background.
The sentiment and label are from the Something Fancy bundle. I added in some 2022-2024 Matte Decorative Dots in Tahitian Tide to finish the design off.
