LSG "Under the Sea" Contest & Easel Card
On the image I used the mica in Indian Summer Turquoise and the Magicals in Hydrangea Blue on her fin, as well as her eyeshadow on her lids. I then added little dots of the Magicals to her tail. Lots of pearls and rhinestones were added to mimic gems. I put a cluster on her hair as if it was a hair broach and also some on her fin.
All the papers that were used were lightly inked with Distress Ink Antique Linen for that aged look. The scroll was cut from the QuicKutz Parchment Scroll die. The sentiment on the scroll came from a Tim Holtz Boundless Flight stamp set. You can watch a video tutorial on how I achieved that shimmery look using the Magicals and a VersaMark stamp pad here.
All the flowers on the card were white to begin with and then I painted them using the Magicals in Hydrangea Blue and Witch's Potion Purple. The branches w/leaves were colored with the Magicals in Freaky Franken Lime to mimic seaweed at the bottom of the ocean. The original color of that cardstock was a light kraft beige. The die that I used to cut those branches is the Sizzix Sizzlit Branches w/Leaves die. I added some trim to the bottom of the card as well as the inside. I also laid some burlap in the background for "netting".
I hope that those who have a YouTube account will come and participate in our contest. There will be prizes and lots of amazing projects. Even if you do not participate I invite you guys to still come to the Lindy's Stamp Gang channel to view all the wonderful submissions. Thanks for stopping by!

Altered Cigar Box
I made this box for a swap that I joined on Facebook, hosted by Jade (JadedStudios on YouTube). I hade so much fun creating this for my partner. The beautiful paper that I used was K & Company Celeste Designer Paper. The theme for this swap was shabby chic. I also made a coordinating card.
