Srampotique Postcard

 Smushallaum's Postcard

Snoozing and cruising on the Beach and the Sea
Happy holidays from me!


The Latest Stampotique Design Challenge- Postcard

For the background I used Tim Holtz alcohol inks on the amazing Ranger Inkessentials card applying drops of Butterscotch, Purple Twilight, Clover and Pitch Black and dripping alcohol blending solutions to dilute and then moving it around to merge and get the drip effects

I then stamped Stampotique Smushallaum and did the same process with Pitch Black, Eggplant, Purple Twilight and Wild Plum and cut a fringe around the edge, with Seaweed and Stalk stamps for the foreground foliage

  2. Jools, you have captured exactly how I feel when I am swimming underwater! It is floating, free from all the worldly turmoil and strife. Right up there with skinny dipping and riding on the back of a Harley! Colors are perfect! For me, this is magical! Thanks, as always, for inspiring us with your work on the Stampotique Designers' Challege!
