Emboss resist - under the sea

Good Morning, i hope you all had a good weekend, we had some lovely weather. 

Its time for a new challenge over at Make My Monday  The theme this fortnight is


My first thought was to dig out my flower stamps but on having a look in my stamp stash found my set of sea themed stamps by chocolate baroque, so went with a sea/water background. 

I first stamped the shells and heat embossed with clear embossing powder, i then die cut into a hexagon and coloured with distress inks in blues and greens.  I added some water drops,dabbed with tissue to remove some of the ink to add 'bubbles'  

I then added to a white card base cut into a hexagon.  I then die cut a hexagon frame, stamped the greeting and added with foam tape.  I die cut 3 seahorses & 'seaweed' from scraps of card coloured with brusho's & pixie powders.

I stamped the anchor and heat embossed with a black glitter embossing powder and cut out.  I stamped the starfish 3 times onto orange card and cut out.  I then arranged them all.

Close up, i added glossy accents to the bubbles on the background, enamel drops & touches of glitter glue to finish. 

The background before i added everything else, you can clearly see the water drops here. 

Items Used:
Chocolate Baroque stamps - seashell collage
Craft stamper magazine stamp - starfish
Cheerylynn seahorse dies
Spellbinders foliage die (seaweed)
Stitched hexagon dies
Tim Holtz distress inks - twisted citron, cracked pistachio,  peacock feathers, salty ocean

We look forward to seeing what you come up with at Make my Monday

I hope you all have a good week. Emma
