Making a Splash.

I actally managed to make my three atc's for Addicted to ATC's today. Whether or not they will be in time for Tuesday - I don't know! I went to my local P.O and last post went at 4.45pm - I always thought it went at 5.45 DOH! Anyhow - they are in the post now and must take their chances.
The theme this month was 'Make a Splash' It could be anything to do with water so I decided upon a seahorse. (Mainly 'cos that is the only watery type stamp I had!).

These were made using very dark card stock (Stampin' Up Night of Navy & Handsome Hunter). The card stock was then covered in Versa Mark ink. I then got my Cosmic Shimmers out and threw on some blue, green and gold powders and blended them with a soft paintbrush. I inked up my seahorse stamp again with the Versa Mark and stamped it onto the cards. This 'lifted' the powder off the card to reveal the image. (If you try this remember to clean your stamp well afterwards as it ruins your ink pads). I then added some blingy details and a bit of glitter. Thanks for stopping by - hope you have a good weekend - Jacqueline xx.
