New Sheena Release!

Sheena has new two new sets coming out Hidden Stars and Underwater Angels!! 

The technique that came to my mind for how to use these images is Encaustic Painting!  I created the background first onto High Gloss Cardstock. To see a quick video on beginning Encaustic Painting, click here.

Next, I stamped the images onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock and colored them with my Spectrum Noir Markers. I used a combination of direct coloring to the cardstock and also tip to tip. As you lay the color on the cardstock, a natural blending occurs.  

fish 1: Blender, CT1, OR1, OR2, GB6
fish 2: CT1, OR1, TB1, TB4
seahorse: LV1, LV2, LV3

After coloring I cut out each image, edged them with a black water-based marker, and glued  them down with Collall's Tacky-Glue

Crafter's Companion has had several new releases. For more ideas, be sure to pop over to the Crafter's Companion Information Blog, as well as visit the Crafter's Companion DT members.  You can see their latest designs by clicking on the names on the left side of my blog.
