Here's what I've created for today:

No butterflies today! Today we're going on a textural adventure under the sea...

The focal panel was created using a panel of Bazzill chipboard in white. Several tube acrylics were squeezed onto my Stampendous Creative Palette and brayered a bit to swirl at bit. The panel was placed face down on the wet ink, and pulled up immediately. Pulling up creates the wrinkly-looking lines through the paint for a very cool texture. Once the panel was dry, a few of Nathalie Kalbach's Grunge Kaffee Klatsch images from Stampendous were stamped over the surface in Colorbox Chalk inks (Deep Lagoon, Iced Jade, Aquamarine). The Dreamweaver Jellyfish stencil was ink-stenciled with black Surfacez ink. A bit of talcum powder was wiped over the surface as an anti-static medium before paste-embossing in Metallic Gold the Jellyfish again over the top. Steel Blue and Fresh Green Crushed Glass Glitter from Stampendous were sprinkled on the molten surface and lightly pressed in (CAREFUL! It will be warm!)

Now for the base of this project. I used a 12 X 12 piece of Bazzill Chipboard in black. I stamped a few of Nathalie's images again, some I embossed in Aged Gold Embossing Enamel, some embossed in black, and some stamped in white or gold ink. Extra sprinklings of the Aged Gold were tossed about, and heated from underneath. The focal panel was adhered to the base. Finally, I die cut the words from the Dreamweaver Dual Alphabet, inked them halfway with watermark ink, and embossed the portions in Aged Black or Aged Marine Embossing Enamel. These were then adhered to the "canvas".
