I am an aqua maniac and just could not resist an ocean scene for my final creation for this summertime hop. Turtles are a big part of the good luck traditions and aloha spirit on the Hawaiian islands and today is a thank you card to the Stampendous and Dreamweaver teams for being so supportive this week.



I paste-embossed the turtle stencil (LM179) with Pearlescent Embossing Paste (DPP), also the Thank You (LG691) and the ocean floor were done with the same. The bubbles were done with the holes of Picasso (LL332)...I just taped off all the curves and other odd shaped holes and what was left were great circles for the air bubbles. Next came the Molten Magic technique (which was a happy technique creation by Stampendous design team member Jennifer Dove). This is achieved by sprinkling the wet paste with Metallic F/X colors (Goldfinch, Glacier Lake and Moonstone) and also some of the Stampendous Encrusted Jewel Teal Kit (EJK06), then heating it all while wet for a result of bubbling lava-like texture. The ocean floor was sculpted with about 1/8" to 1/4" of paste and then shells, sea glass and some of the larger mica powders from the Encrusted Jewel Teal kit were set into this wet paste for the final touch. I am really loving these crusty sparklers by Stampendous.

Now, hop on over to the next in line. Don't forget to leave some love for a chance to win, and just 'cuz it's nice!

I love that turtle and the ocean floor. Does metallic PearlEx work on that wet paste idea?

Lea said...

Lynell, this is so cool! It's like looking into an aquarium! Love how you did the ocean floor and that little Starfish really sets it off. The Molten Magic technique was perfect for this one! And that little Picasso has so many cool uses, I love mine!
