Its Ching Chou Kuik's birthday this month so her DT is throwing a celebration challenge in her honor in the Facebook Group and I had time to play along!!! I used the beautiful Magic Wish digi to create this fun birthday tag in her honor!
Its such a sweet image! I had so much fun using some new techniques I've recently learned... some worked! and some did not... LOL
I've been practicing creating a water color looking background with my copic refills... how did I do? I used some Liquid Pearls for the bubbles; perfect pearls painted on for the stars; and some wink of stella for the tail and its soooo shiny!!!
I tried using distress inks in an embossing folders to create a multi-tonal background and then clear emboss on top for a shiny multi-tonal but that didn't work but the little bits of ink that did get on the background allowed the embossing powder to stick so it ended up creating a really cool fluid background.
All the coral, seaweed and see life are stamped with a Kaiser Craft stamp and then my own blends of Perfect Pearls embossing powders. I sprinkled the different colors in all different places to highlight the different foliage and then heated it up. The end result is so shiny and colorful!!
See sooooo shiny!!! I coated a chipboard seahorse with liquid pearls too. Then my Cricut cut the sentiment for me. I love that my Cricut will do the writing for me! I designed the circle set it to write and put in a Ranger Perfect Medium Pen. The sprinkled it with my homemade Interference Red Perfect Pearl embossing powder and ta-da!
Thanks so much for popping in today to see what I've been up to!! Can't wait to see you all back again!!
