Life in a Tropical Ocean ... new release from Polka Doodles

Oh my, oh my and oh my ... Nikky Hall from Polka Doodles has released the most wonderful set of sea themed stamps and the range is called "Oceana" and I decided to have a play with the "Tropical Oceans" and the "Tropical Underworld" using my pan pastels to add colour.

The background was made using pan pastels and then the seaweed images were stamped with perfect medium and then coloured with different pan pastels. The white bubbles were created with white acrylic paint.

All the images were stamped and then coloured with pan pastels using a soft brush. Once they were cut out, I then covered them in perfect medium and clear embossing powder. The sea horse however, was coevred in Shimmering Pearl embossing powder from Tonic Studios. I created a simple frame and then layered up my images.

A quick card which satisfied the messy person inside me but kept to the uncluttered look I was trying to go for. I have another project on the go with these wonderful stamps which I will share shortly ...
