Deep End Of The Ocean

Here is another Third Coast project.  This one features Waltz of the Sirens from the Winter 2006 Supplement.  To create the background for this card, I used a smooshed watercolor background technique using Crayola markers and a Platinum Planet Brilliance re-inker.

You can check out Dawn's video featuring this technique and then put your own spin on it!  I scribbled Crayola markers on inside of sheet protector, added a few drops of reinker and spritzed it with water.  Then I  smooshed the sheet protector together,  opened it and add 2 pieces of white card stock.  I re-smooshed the sandwich and then removed the paper and dried it with the heat gun.

Using one of the background pieces, I stamped Waltz of the Sirens and heat set it before coloring the vines with Copics, the hair with Spica and the tails with Crystal Stickles.

 Sandra’s seen a leprechaun,
 Eddie touched a troll,
 Laurie danced with witches once,
 Charlie found some goblins gold.
 Donald heard a mermaid sing,
 Susy spied an elf,
 But all the magic I have known
 I've had to make myself."
