My Creative Classroom - Rubber Stamping Back to Basics Wk 5 (Final Project)

The final "homework" of the course is to use any of the techniques covered in a project based upon one of 5 sketches provided by Glenda. Since the sketch forms part of the Copyrighted Course Material I have not included it in this post. I used brayering for the seahorse & fish plus heat embossing for the seashell, seaweed & bubbles.


Prior to working through the course I neither knew what to use them for nor was I confident in stamping silhouette stamps. The seahorse is my first ever stamping of this particular stamp - I could hardly believe when it turned out so well.

Recipe
Stamps Elusive Images UA5SP0259 Underwater (seahorse, seashell & seaweed),  CC Designs Sugar Plums Underwater (bubbles & fish).

Wow!! Paula - this is absolutely beautiful. I love everything about it. The image of the seahorse is stunning - the brayered colours works so well with stamp. And the other fish and bubbles complete the scene. It's fabulous.
