Tangled up under the Sea (posted by Judith)

Hello everyone, I have had great fun playing with the new stamps recently released from Chocolate Baroque and have a project with a difference to show you today.

I have incorporated a bit of Zentangle with the Steampunk Funk Fish and Steampunk Sea World stamp sets. I started my card by stamping the scenery section onto the bottom left hand corner of the background, and then adding the bubble machine. I joined them together with some hand drawn lines using a permanent black pen, and created a sandy floor. I drew some plants using various tangles, and then stamped some jellyfish, seahorses and more bubbles. I coloured everything with a mixture of watercolour pencils, blending with water brushes.I added detail on the metallic areas with a gold pen and a charcoal glitter pen. Finally, I added Glossy Accents to the bubbles.
 This was such a relaxing project to create, as tangling is very calming, and you can add as much or as little as you like to create a scene. For more details on my project, just hop over to My Blog. Keep checking back for lots more colourful inspiration from my Design Team mates over the coming month, Judith xx


  1. Love the bubble machine and those bubbles really stand out.

  2. This is a super way of incorporating tangles into the design & I particularly like the seamless way in which you created the seabed. The gloss on the bubbles is a super touch as is the metallic sheen of the gears & bubble machine. The sot pinky jellyfish look very ethereal & I like the way all the creatures & the bubbles have added to the sense of upward movement in your tangles by leading the eye towards where the former float off the design.
