Grab the Badge!

It's our first challenge at The Technique Twist Challenge blog

I had a lot of fun trying out this technique and it was so EASY!
It's amazing how the shiny glossy paper and watery colors achieved
a real underwater feel.

You will want to stamp your image with BLACK STAZON on white glossy paper  3 1/2" x 3" and then place 2 drops of reinkers ( Bermuda Bay and Pistachio Pudding ) at the base of the coral. 

Use a straw and blow the ink upward moving your straw slightly side to side toward the top of the coral. Let dry for several hours or use a hairdryer to speed up drying time. Stamp the fish image with stazon on a separate piece of glossy paper and use a small drop of reinker and a blender pen to shade in the colors of the fish. Pop up the fish with dimensionals. Cut layers as given toward the end of this post.
Now it's your turn.....

  1. Hi Pam! Love how you applied the technique here, really adds to the under water effect with the coral! I just had a dream about using the same colors on a card too! Love the fish!

  2. The Blown Ink adds such dimension to the coral & gives it a fab shot of color, Pam! I love the pretty colors on this card! Makes me wish to grab my dive gear & hit the waves! :)

  3. Aww Pam, you r going to make me get this stamp set. :) i love your subtle take on this technique. It really add a LOT of interest to the stamped image plus the colors bring all to life. Loving it! Tfs!

  12. That has really set the coral off - imagine it would work just as well on photo card. Thanks for sharing.
