More sea cards

Continuing with The Deep plate from Oxford Impressions, I used actual reef photos and stamped images to create this undersea world.

I used amber crystals for the eyes on the octopus.

The seahorse also has a crystal eye. The sea creature images were stamped on glossy cardstock and coloured with waterbased and pigment markers.

I really enjoyed using my photos with the images. Regardless of how exotic the stamped images are, the reef is even more spectacular. I did have to soften the pictures so that the stamped images were not lost.
