Under the Sea Take Two

Continuing with the underwater theme from last week, my new PaperArtsy Scrapcosy stamps arrived in the week. Here are the results of today's experiments.

All stamped images are from PaperArtsy Eclectica by Scrapcosy ESC10.
The background is made using Distress Oxides and images stamped with watering can archival ink.
The fish have been stamped with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink, painted with white fire Fresco paint and cut out. There is some oxide ink in the mix on the darker fish which was stamped with archival ink.
The white fire paint makes them look shimmery, here's a close up;

Carrying on with the fish because they are great fun to work with, I made a couple of little cards.
They are small 4" by 4" cards. The images are stamped with black versafine ink this time with glossy accents on their eyes. 

Finally, an experiment with a watercolour effect. These fish were second generation stamping spritzed with water (faded jeans distress oxide again). I cut it down to ATC size.

Go see Raquel's beautiful examples and inspiration on the PaperArtsy blog for this release, I loved playing with these fish.


  1. Wonderful underwater scenes, Julia - you've done wonders with the fabulous new Scrapcosy stamps. Think I glimpsed the seahorse below, so I'm off to see him now...
