Just Turtling Around by Helen Chilton


Hi there, it's Helen here and I've made a quick card using some Crafty Individual stamps.

I've used the Alice Palace Turtle and some of the Crafty Elements for the borders.
The background is made up by stencilling with Dinky Stencil 005 and Broken China and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxides and then spritzing to make the dye ink move and soften it. I then couldn't resist adding some more bubbles with some of the new gold metallic paint which is coming very soon!

I finished the background with a few punched out circles coloured with Wilted Violet Oxide inkpad and overstamped. The Ship and Navigation Elements Set is used to stamp a sort of rough border in black:

The swimming turtle is coloured with Oxides as well and then the shell is painted over with  DecoArt Liquid Glass:

And there you have it - just layer onto coloured card and add a few brads.

Supplies Used:

Crafty Individuals Stamps: CI-413 Alice Palace Designs: A Bright Future;  CI-294 Crafty Elements: Ship and Navigation
Dinky Stencil 005: Bubbles Background
Ranger Archival Inkpad: Jet Black
