This was a fun but unusual project for me. I have a grandson (Brandon) in TN who has a girlfriend (Anna) who is quite an artist. Anna has been posting her art work, done for school, on Facebook and this particular project intrigued me. I asked for permission to use it on a card and this is the result. Anna's class was given 3 pictures of ordinary sea creatures and told to create a 'steam punk' version. Anna chose the jellyfish. The first draft was a pure drawing but not dark enough to get a good copy of. This final was done on black scratchboard paper for the art class project.
I used a dark pink handmade sheet of paper as the base and a lighter pink for the next layer and to back the jellyfish. I picked out the clock in the center tentacles as a focal point so embossed the white layer with The Paper Studio's Clocks folder and inked it to pop out as a backing for the jellyfish. The sentiments are from various little sets.
