Take Me to the Ocean -- A Canvas

Greetings! It's Kathi here with a Steampunk canvas with Stamperia's wonderful new Sea World Octopus Stamp Set, the Mechanical Sea World Thick Stencil, and  Visible Image's Dare to Swim Clear Polymer Stamp Set.

Here it is!

This is one of those projects that took on a life of its own after I was ready to bin it! My original intention was to create a card, but I didn't like the way the tentacles were colored.  Then I couldn't bear to trim the image panel, had no room for the sentiment, and then decided to just make a canvas since I love all things Steampunk!

The Octopus, from the Sea World Octopus Stamp Set, was stamped onto a5.5" x 8.5"  piece of white metallic paper and onto mask paper. The mask version was fussy-cut and placed over the image panel. Distress inks in shades of blue were sponged over the image. More Distress ink was sponged over the Sea World stencil onto the image panel. The greenery and fish from the Dare to Swim Clear Polymer Stamp Set were stamped onto the image panel. The mask was lifted and the Octopus image was colored with Copic markers. The image panel has a lot of shimmer that I wish you could see!
