Hello everyone, I hope you are enjoying the busy festive season, it's hard to believe that we are getting into mid December.
Well today is another break from Christmas designs as I have a mixed media piece featuring Chocolate Baroque's wonderful new Steampunk stamp sets, Steampunk Seaworld and Steampunk Funky Fish. I love the Jellyfish !

I used a little Silks mica powder over the sand texture and spritzed with water. After dry I added Krystal Gel over the sandy areas.
I stamped the images with Cobalt Archival ink and coloured with Prisma pencils. I used a metallic gold Gellyroll pen to highlight the cogs.
I used both sets which are on an introductory offer this month:
