Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop

The ideas were flowing when I saw this delicious inspiration photo for Papertrey Ink's June Blog Hop!


My Salt Air products just arrived so I decided to make a rainbow underwater scene!


So many layers of ink and stamping! I started by sponging Tim Holtz Distress Inks for the background, then splattering on some water mixed with gold Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.


I added some Salt Air: Flora images stamped along the bottom, then heat embossed them with clear powder.


I die cut some fish using the Reef Builder dies, sponged them to match where I wanted them placed on my background, and added a sentiment from Salt Air: Sentiments.


I die cut Salt Air: Fauna, and sponged ombre colors onto the pieces before stamping the images so that I wouldn't have stark white edges. Once I started stamping, I used my MISTI so that I could layer different colors on the fauna images. Lastly, some Nuvo Drops in all of the colors... because I am a little obsessed, ha! 

Thanks so much for hopping by!
