I used Manatee Pals

I used my Gel Press and Krafty Kolours ink in Mermiad Melody, Lovely Lagoon, Purple Pansy and Raspberry Rose.  I then lightly brayered the colors together and then stamped into the ink on the Gel Press.  

Then I laid my white paper on the Gel Press and pulled the print up.

When you stamp into the ink, it removes the ink in the section and looks like a resist.

I matted the print and then colored the Manatees with my Copics.  W9, W7, W5, W3 and W1 with some R20.  I also stamped some of the shells and seaweed on the Spring Paper Panels Kit and then cut them out.

Thanks for stopping by,
