underwater folding


The current challange at Try it on Tuesday is more than one fold. I did a gatefold card a decorated it with designs by Ryn stamps.

I had a bit of a problem when I didn't stamp the baby seahorse properly so I over stamped kelp over it so it looked like he is emerging from the leaves which I really like. 

The project is inspired by the below photo.

 This amazing image is by the amzingly talented:
Kyle McBurnie, California Harbor seal in a kelp forest at Cortes bank, near San Diego, CA.
 I used the following distress inks to try and convay the beautiful shades of blue: faded jeans, tumbled glass, peacock feathers and of course salty ocean. I listened to Florence and the machine's never let me go which really went with the theme. I look foward to seeing your creations. 
Please remeber we have a DT call on at the mo, come and join the team.
I am also entering this into the following challenges
make my monday - mythical creatures- 2 mermaids
vintage stamp challenges - anything goes
PS really loved this, so stuck it in my art journal because I didn't want to part with it!
