Designs by Ryn Sponsor Spotlight

Jan here, Wow, I am delighted to highlight our amazing sponsor for May - Designs by Ryn.

I love her stamps. They are so unusual, detailed and stamp perfectly every time. I was able to choose which stamps I would like to use. YES, I got the bubbles, water drops and the gorgeous fish.
Many thanks Ryn!

I decided to create a diorama card, for the fish to swim amongst sea weed and coral. It was very fiddly because it was my first attempt at 3D paper work.

This is how I made the card.

The background was stamped, embossed and inked. The bubbles were embossed with white opaque powder. The fish was stamped with Mermaid Lagoon and a background of blended DI.

The second layer, using coordinations paper, die cut with TH Elegant Flourishes to create seaweed.

I stamped and embossed the fish on watercolour paper and cut them out.

I coloured them and added fussy cut layer fins and tail to the front fish, then added Glossy Accents.

I scored and folded the sides of the card and then added the layers with slots at the side. Sorry I forgot to take photos of that part - very fiddly!

The three pieces were layered with double sided tape to the folded sides. It looked quite bare so I added more seaweed using Tattered Pinecone leaf die.

The top layer was die cut with TH thinlets to resemble coral.

I stamped some oriental text on the top layer and added Rock Candy Stickles to the coral.

I was really pleased with how the card turned out, I hope you will be inspired try Ryn's stamps, they are beautiful to use.
