Turquoise - At the bottom of the sea





Turquoise is this week´s Wednesday Stampers´ theme. This card is titled "At the bottom of the sea", using a lady from German painter and designer Heinrich Vogeler. The background is a collage made of tissue dyed with egg-dyes, scraps from old book pages, wax crayons, radiant pearls, pearlescent ink, and embossing powders - and various fish and swirl stamps of course.
Turquoise is one of my favourite colours, but I´ll have to go and wash my hands now before I go to work ...
