Stunning Under the Sea Creation!

Today we have an amazing card to share from Designer Trena Brannon.  She made this stunning card using a new Sheena Douglass release called Under The Sea and the sets are called Hidden Stars and Underwater Angels.


The painting technique that Trena used is called Encaustic Painting and she created the background with wax colors and an iron on Crafter's Companion High Gloss Cardstock.



She set aside the background piece to dry and then stamped the fish and seahorse images onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock and colored them with Spectrum Noir Markers. She used a combination of direct coloring to the cardstock and also tip to tip. As you lay the color on the cardstock, a natural blending occurs.  

fish 1: Blender, CT1, OR1, OR2, GB6
fish 2: CT1, OR1, TB1, TB4
seahorse: LV1, LV2, LV3





After coloring, she cut out each image, she edged each them with a black water-based marker so they would pop off the background.  Then she glued them down with Collall's Tacky-Glue.   How stunning!
