The Sea .... Again

This afternoon's playtime began with some Gelli prints. I wanted to make some backgrounds for my fish and sea creatures. I didn't really know where I was going with this when I started but I have ended up with three postcards.

I used Distress Ink applied to the gelli plate with a brayer, no oxides this time as I wanted a translucent look.
Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon, Milled Lavender and Dusty Concorde.
Then I stamped the seaweed and fish from PaperArtsy Eclectica ESC10 using Blue Violet and Cornflower Blue archival ink and took a print.
One of the panels has a moon. OK, no moon under the sea but we will call it a reflection I think.

Then I used black Versafine ink to stamp sea creatures and shells on the panels. I used some scrap card to stamp the words and coloured the letters with Distress markers, cut them out and stuck them on. Then I trimmed the panels and added some Dusty Concorde ink around the edges to finish them off.

Here are the three postcards.

I don't think I will ever tire of playing with my PA Scrapcosy sea themed stamps. 


  1. Before using the final darker stamps the effect is so watery, and the illogical moon works.

  2. Such lovely shades of ink for these undersea-scapes!
