still addINKtive - STSS - By The Tide

Well, another week has flown by, so it's time for Spot That Stamp Set at still addINKtive.  This week we are highlighting the sets By the Seashore & By the Tide.

I have used Jaydee's great sketch at the Paper Players to create this card:-

I have used the fish & lace coral from By the Tide.  I inked my stamp with Versamark & then Island Indigo ink, which enabled me to clear emboss the outline of the fish.  I watercoloured the image & then added a layer of wash using Frost White Shimmer paint.  He has a lovely shiny but imperfect finish, just like the real thing!  :)  He's been fussy cut & popped up on dimensionals.  The coral was clear embossed on the gold metallic background & then highlighted with some white sponging:-

The net panel was created by stamping the woodgrain background image twice (at right angles) onto vellum & then white embossing.  I sponged around the edges with white ink as well.

A simple bradded sentiment panel finishes off the card.

We hope you can join us at still addINKtive this week, by showcasing up to three projects you have made with either of these sets.  You can find the awesome creations that the SA Design Team came up with here.
