Always be on the lookout

 Hello everyone, 

For today's AALL & Create post I have made a card. I went back into the 'archives' to search out some older stamps that I still really like and this is what I came up with.

Here's how:

I used Distress Oxide inks, sprays and some pigment powders to make this background. I just put them all on my craft sheet, spritzed with water and dunked the card in it. I then added a stencil print.

This stamp is one of my favourite ones for backgrounds; there are so many elements to use.. I used a greenish ink that matched some of the background. 

A bit more background stamping. This time with black.

Next I stamped the fish on the card and on a piece of watercolour paper. 

I then watercolored the fish... and cut it out.

I then glued it onto the one on the card. I also added a sentiment, in this case a small talk sticker by Tim Holtz. 

I have used the following AALL & Create materials:

stencil #59 Weathered tiles by Autour de Mwa
#489 Wisecracks by Autour de Mwa
#58 Scribble it by Autour de Mwa
#386 Ocean Wonders by Bipasha Bk
