Find the beautiful...


Ciao a tutti e bentornati! Oggi vi presento una Tag in stile...'in fondo al mar...' che ho fatto per il DT di MarteLAB...Dettagli, foto e tutorial in italiano potete trovarli cliccando  QUI 

Hello everyone and welcome back! Today I am showing you a Tag that I have made for MarteLAB DT...in a 'under the sea' style...let's start...


Die cut a Tag using Tim Holtz Alterations/Sizzix 'Tag Collection set' dies and heavy watercolour cardstock. Added White Gesso, then modeling paste with Tim Holtz layering stencil 'Mosaic'...while the paste was still wet I sprinkled some Seth Apter's BAKED TEXTURE 'DEEP SEA' by Emerald Green,  and dried.
Then sprayed the Tag with water and added PaperArtsy INFUSION SLEIGHT BLUE, added more water and let the colour drip and dried.



Added 13Arts Navy Blue Rainbow Colour Duo then TommyArt  INK EXTREME 'PETROLEUM', always adding water.
Added embossing Ink to the bottom of the Tag and more Deep Sea Baked Texture, heat embossed and glued two sea shells, then added a bit of DIRTY SAND Baked Texture and embossed again.





Drybrushed with white gesso, and started assembling the pieces...seaweeds are diecut with Tim Holtz Alterations/Sizzix 'Mini Holiday Greens' set and the words are from 'Handwritten Journey' set (I embossed these with Deep Sea baked texture), the sentiment is a SMALL TALK sticker by Tim Holtz, that I cut in two.
The lovely seahorse is from Aall and Create stamp set #67...I painted it with Distress Oxide Inks: Candied Apple and Broken China, then embossed the seahorse with Clear Embossing Powder by Ranger and added few touches of Clear Wink of Stella of the wing.
Added also few Nuvo Crystal Drops in Simply White, for the bubbles...they lift some colour from the background, and I must say that I really like this effect!

Here's few details...






Always seek and find the Beauty in our world...

I submit this project to the following challenges:




Well...it's mostly Blue and white, but added a touch of red on the seahorse...

That's it...thank you so much for stopping by, hope you enjoyed this project...and...see you next time!

Kisses&Hugs!
Simo.

I adore this tag! I have never ever seen a seahorse with wings, so you get huge points for creativity on that part alone! And the colors are so beautifully blended! It's full of life and energy and I loved each and every component. Thank you for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
