For some reason my first ghosting panel, the writing didn't stay very white, except on the bottom third of the card. The top two thirds it's darker green than the rest?? So I started again, stamping French Script on glossy card with Versamark and leaving it to dry for a while. Then I spritzed it with some Brusho mists and dabbed it with kitchen towel to dry, and then sponged on some Forest Moss and Salty Ocean distress inks.
Stamped the sentiment and image stamp with Ranger's Archival, and doodled a border with a black Sharpie. Added my extra sand dollar and it looked very flat and blank. So I used a stencil and added some acrylic paints in the bottom, and also stippled a bit on over the rest. Now it looked unbalanced, so I manually embossed part of a swirly ef and added dots along some of it. Happy enough, but it's not what I had imagined in my mind's eye.

WOW - I LOVE how this turned out! The mix of colors is beautiful for your undersea setting. I MUST remember your trick to here to add some white gel dots to the dry embossing to give it a little more definition - great too, so that the sand dollar wasn't the only white element on the card.
