Elusive Images stamps

Here are two cards I have made using stamps from the beautiful new Elusive Images underwater range. They are both coloured with Twinkling H2Os and the scales are touched with Crystal Stickles to give an extra shimmer. The background just behind the mermaid is given a little colour using glimmer chalks and the sea dragon has the edges sponged with Dusty Concord Distress inks.

The background paper of the mermaid card is Graphicus (from the Guild Members pack) and although it doesn't show up very well on the photo I have stamped onto it using Brilliance Platinum Planet and some of the silhouette mermaids and underwater plants, this gives a shadowy glimpse of the images.

The "frame" of the sea dragon is a shimmery paper that picks up the colour of the dragon beautifully. I have then cut out the pots, sea plant, seaweed etc and put on the outside of the frame, some flat others standing out using sticky pads, I'm really pleased with the results.
