Not the normal spelling but then the company that brought this image out is not your "run of the mill" stamp company. Smeared Ink. It was one of the prizes for entering a challenge during february in the Smeared and Smudged forum. I have used it for my entry into the sketchy challenge over there for march also the photo inspiration challenge.

The background has been made using my newest toy, a brayer. I have lots to learn on how to use it but it's fun practising. I stamped a few "branch" wavy lines (Lavinia Stamps) to give the impression of sea weed in black and green and layered on an "MS border" to frame it.
The image was coloured with watercolour pencils, blended with baby oil. Just a hint of glitter in the water. The outside is oil pastels in 3 different colour greens, again blended.

The swirls are die cuts that I double heat embossed with a sea green/gold powder. The little flower is home made from a length of thin lace and pearl button in my stash. A few little pearls to finish.

All mounted onto a light green CS base.

The personal sentiment will follow later.

This has been entered into the Smeared and Smudged challenges as above.
Also into The Outlawz Green Challenge this week
Wild Orchid Challenges - diecuts and punches - both used here
