A Bright Future – Crafty Individuals

I just fell in love with this turtle stamp when I found him tucked inside an envelope on my return from holiday at the end of May, what a lovely surprise especially as I had only just seen real live turtles on a beach in Hawaii a few days before. 

A week later I made this tag for Crafty Individuals and I am a bit late posting it. I think this ought to go in my Positivity Journal don't you?
The background is broken china distress paint brushed onto the tag and flicked with water, I added some bubbles and sea greenery (using the bump technique) to give the effect of being underwater.
The turtle was stamped onto watercolour paper and I coloured him in with my new watercolours.
The small sentiment is part of the stamp set and the larger one is computer generated.
The leaves were inked through a Dylusions mask.

I'm off on holiday to Lanzarote soon with all the family and am looking forward to some quality time with them all. This time it's a pool and beach holiday so no turtles to find here.

I hope your week is going well.
