Fiddlehead Spirals and Bubbles

Hello everyone, I hope all is well.

I have a design today using the new Fiddlehead Set from Designs by Ryn along with other favorites.  


The background is again Dylusions Inks (Teal, Midnight & White) spritzed with water to blend.   I sprinkled sea salt while the ink was wet.   I sprayed a little more water where you see the large water 'spot'.     

I stamped the amazing Rising Bubbles with Black Archival Ink and Sea Bubbles with Seedless Preserves and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks.   I embossed the two smallest Fiddlehead spirals  with black, bleached the ink & painted a few with Dylusions ink.  I also painted the rising bubbles with Purple Dylusions ink using a brush & water.  I used a white Gelly Roll pen to highlight.

The sentiment is by Impression Obsession - C13073.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
Shirley

Your backgrounds are always quite amazingly beautiful, and I always enjoy reading about how you make them. I like all the little spirals top right.
What a good quote and how true.

Your big spot & the salt effects beneath really echo those rising bubbles beautifully & as for those swirls - they're just super. This feels like underwater in a very exotic lagoon somewhere.

I love this card Shirley, and the new fiddlehead stamps from Ryn. I got to play with this set while at Eileens workshop. These, along with all the other new stamps are on my wish list. I also love the great colours you've used for this card.

Hope you've had a good week and have an even better weekend.
