Under the sea encaustic

BasicGrey stamp on white paper and clear embossed.  Inked with Distress ink, and stamped background.  Top layer  of paper then pealed away.  All this was done by my very artistic cousin – before she discarded and I stole.  Thanks Hailey!  I then sprayed with water to make the ink blend and run.  Covered with a layer of wax and imbedded the fish (from K and Company), strips of stained tissue and microbeads from Martha Stewart.

I’m starting to fall in love with the way wax makes colors more vibrant and muted at the same time.

Texture is a wonderful thing!  I forgot to use Rubnbuff!  UGHHHHH!  What color should I use?  Blue or silver?  Both?
