Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 7 April 2017

 Here is my weekly inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog. 

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "UNDER THE SEA(this can include animals/mermaids sitting by the sea as at some stage they go into the sea).

Here is my inspiration post with this theme.
 I have decided to make a mixed media project for a special friend's birthday.  I have used a heart shaped MDF plaque from The Works and coated with gesso.  Once dry I have over various different areas added some Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture Paste Chic Viola and Cosmic Shimmer Texture Paste Chic Aubergine through various masks.  Once dry I knocked back the colour with a wash over with Imagination Crafts Starlights Pearl Paint.

For this project I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Purple Tender".  I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers, highlighted areas with my sparkle clear pen and then fussy cut around the image.

I have then used various seaside dies from Sweet Dixie, Joanna Sheen and a Memory Box die for the clouds.  I have cut these dies out of various colours of card and various textures like wood and cork.  I have also used a Joy! Crafts stamp set and coloured in the shells and a stamped sentiment.

I have finished this project off with the rope that came with the MDF heart and some very large pearls.

I am entering this mixed media project into the following challenges:
