I just can't seem to stray away from these stamps for too long ... they call me back like a "Sea Siren" although I don't really resist their urge. I now want Nikky to make dies to match them so it speeds up my making process ... hint, hint Nikky ... ! I haven't played with my pan pastels for absolutely eons and challenged myself today to get them out and have some fun. This is what I came up with ... I masked off the centre of my card and used the pan pastels to create the background. I have over stamped with Versamark which removed the pan pastels and left a relief. Next I used a stencil and a rubber to create even more bubbles. I then went in again with the versamark and stamped some more images but this time embossed them. Next came the images and I have used a selection from both the Tropical Underworld and the Tropical Oceans stamp sets. My images have also been coloured with pan pastels and I have mainly used the colours from the mixed media set.
