Two Tag Tuesday posts in one week – wow! That is only because I posted one late and this one is not so late 🙂 The theme for this week’s challenge is “The Deep” i.e. anything that is found under the sea.
I lived on a tropical island, Mauritius, for 10 years and so blue, green, turquoise are the colours that spring to mind when I think of the sea there. When one went snorkelling one could see fish in lots of beautiful colours. The coral, funnily enough was not as bright as one would imagine. I read somewhere, that the coral in cold waters tends to be more colourful than the coral in warm waters.
For this tag, I used a background stamp of an underwater scene, using an inkpad containing lavender, blue, aqua, mint and turquoise. I embossed this with a blue pearl embossing powder. The fish and seahorses were stamped, embossed, cut out and mounted onto the background. At the bottom I glued on the coloured stones. After trying different colour ribbons I decided that the yellow one “tied” it all together.
On that note, here is my little tag…
As usual, please go to Rebecca’s site and have a look at the other entries.
