Under the sea by Hetty

Hello Technique Junkies,

I have dived down the ocean to find you this card.
You see here the Texture Duet technique from the
October 2010 Newsletter in combination with the
Cuttlebug Highlight technique from the
October 2008 Newsletter.
You might find that you cannot see the image very well
on the front of the card, that is true. I have created a window
in this card with some gell in it, to give it a "sea"-look.

The backgroundpaper on front and inside was made with
watercolor paint (just the cheap children's one).
After painting the paper and it was drie, I stamped and
embossed with clear and white embossing powder.
Than again I colored on top with watercolor paint.
When everything was dry I ran it trough the cuttlebug.

And Ollie the Octopae is colored with copic markers
and glued on top of a background like the front.
used stamps:
bubble stamps: smARTworks
sentiments: Create with TLC

Have a creative day!
