Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 19 May 2017

Here is my weekly inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog. 

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "RIBBON AND LACE".

The topic for the Design Team this week was "ANYTHING GOES".

Here is my inspiration post with this theme.
 I decided to do another journal page.  I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Autumn Sea" and it comes in a set of 4 other mermaids in the Etsy Store.  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Mustard Seed and Salty Ocean distress ink.
 For the background of the journal pages I used my little round Tim Holtz distressing tool sponges and stamped circles with Tim Holtz's Broken China distress ink.  I then used the circular pad and used Tim Holtz's Peacock Feather distress ink and stamped in the gaps leaving some white spaces.
I then used stamps from a Joy! Craft "Under the sea" set to make the background.  I stamped out the shells and coloured in with Promarkers and cut out.

I adhered the shells and an anchor with a Creative Expressions Matte Medium I got from a One Day Special.  I also added the Matte Medium over the finish and seahorse so it added some texture and dimension.

Unfortunately my Sky Box was new to me then and I didn't realise that once full of recordings it will delete things so I lost all of Lisa Horton's shows with these products and stamps so I was well miffed as I have forgotten what I can use these products for!!
