Sea Foam

      We have a new challenge over at The Male Room, this fortnight we would like to see you make your own background paper.
     This tag has been coloured using the bubble technique, add colour and washing-up liquid to water and blow bubbles. I did mine in the lid of an A5 clear box with some acrylic paint as I have no re-inkers (as yet!). Once you've blown a load of bubbles and got a nice froth in your container gently touch the tag onto it, this will burst the bubbles and spread colour over your tag as it does so.
     The stamp used on here is from the same set by Inkadinkado as used last month for The Male Room Blues called Down By The Seaside. The images have been stamped in Archival Ink Cobalt with the stripes on the lighthouse coloured with a blue pen.
     The edges have been coloured with Distress Ink Lilac as this was closer to the blue paint than the blue ink I have. Two small holes are punched in the bottom of the card and a dolphin charm is added hanging on some bakers twine.
     I have kept the decoration simple as it's all about the background pattern for this one.  Do come and join us with your background creations at The Male Room. 

I would like to enter this tag in the following challenges:

  3. Just when you think you've heard all the techniques, you learn something new! This is really fantastic, Rocky! Now that's an inky technique that I can probably do and one my grandsons would be all over! Thank you for the inspiration! Your blue seaside tag is divine!! Have a great weekend!! Hugs, Darnell
