Sunday Postcard Art


This is my fish postcard for the challenge at Sunday Postcard Art. The fish are from an Oxford Impressions collage sheet and the background is made following a tutorial on Hermine Koster's blog that you can find here. (I always find such inspiring ideas on her blog!) It uses foil, acetate, alcohol ink and Diamond Glaze, and she's right - it takes forever to dry! I can still kind of squish around the glue after waiting overnight - I guess that kind of adds to the 'watery' look for the background...sorry you can't assess 'squishiness' with a photo!!
