Steampunk Jellyfish from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning folks, Monday already so its back to work for me but before I go here's a bookmark made using the fabulous jellyfish stamp from Steampunk Funky Fish from Chocolate Baroque. When I first saw this stamp, the tentacles reminded me of a tassel so I put my thinking cap on and came up with the idea of a book mark.

The background was from my pile of inky papers, made with distress inks in Broken China, Chipped Sapphire, Mowed Lawn and sprized with mica spray. I covered the wet inky background with cling film and left to dry, unfortunately you can't see the mica in the photos.

I stamped the Jellyfish with Memento Tuxedo Blank ink and added some stencilling with sequin waste and Chipped Sapphire distress ink. 

To add a bit more interest I had a rummage in my craft room and found some Fantasy Film so I dusted of my iron and created the 'umbrellas' of both Jellyfish and attached them with some glue.

To finish off I inked around the edge with more Chipped Sapphire and of course I had to add a tassel.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks: animals
A Little Bit Crafty: Anything goes but not Christmas
Allsorts: animal magic
House that stamps built: anything but a card

Well its time to venture out into the cold and get the bus to work. Its all good fun lol

  3. I just saw the image & hadn't read your post when I thought how brilliantly the tassel echoes those jellyfish tentacles so when I read what you'd written I had to really chuckle. I love the luminescence created by the Fantasy Film jellyfish umbrellas.The background is very evocative of rising bubbles.
