Smudgefest - Day 5 - Flowing Friday

Evening all. I hope you are all sitting comfortably.

It's day 5 of the week long Smeared and Smudged Smudgefest being held over at Smudgy Antics this week. A week when each person has but one day to create a project and link it back to the blog after being told that day's challenge.
Today it's
Create a project using a flowing medium. Some examples could be watercolor, liquid ink, liquid glues, thinned out acrylics, etc.... use your imagination and let the juices flow!

Another fatbook page has emerged from my crafty area for today's challenge. Even if I don't have a full weeks worth - I can insert pics of the other day's projects. (eg yesterday's ATC)

I used water colours and inks to colour my image.

This is the water Nymph from the Smeared Ink Nymph rubber set in my collection. The link is to the digi as the rubber is now unavailable. I stamped her using green stazon, inkeeping with my colour scheme.
Coloured, as I said with water colours and then dipped in watered down distress ink. Finally spritzed it with water and let it run.
The background is the secondary paint transfer from when I was creating my BG on Wednesday with my gelli plate.
image dry, I secured some fibres to the base and overlaid with the image. The shells are from stash. A touch of glitter.

I am entering this into the Smudgefest challenge at Smudgy Antics for today.
