All Creatures Great and Small

Good morning and happy Wednesday. The Stampotique challenge this week is All Creatures Great and Small. I thought that I would go with all undersea creatures, so this is what I made.


This is a photo frame that's been in my stash since time began, so it's time it came out to play.


The frame was gessoe'd and painted in Dyna paints. Then there was lots of stencilling.
Seaweed was stamped and painted then sequins randomly added. Thank you Sam for my new sequin addiction lol.
The background was stamped with Daniel's Hearts and Rudy and Reggie have been painted and coloured with pencils. I put in some acetate so that I could add some sequin insides.
This was how it looked at this stage. I thought that the ammonites weren't showing up too well, so I added some black ink around the edges.


I wasn't sure which I prefered, but it was too late to change now lol.

So I had a wipe around with a baby wipe, then splattered a bit of white paint, and I'm much happier now.

I'm also entering this into the That's Crafty sea challenge.

I hope you have a fun week, and thanks very much for looking x
