Ike's World Challenges #95

Today I would like to show you my makes for Ike's World Challenges!

The current Challenge (#95) Anything Goes with an Optional Twist -
The Abyss or Under the Sea

and this is my midway post...

If you pop over to Ike's World Challenges you will find there is a super freebie to pick up:


You could use this for the Challenge - but your image is free choice...

At one time I decorated lots of 'fat pages' - in fact here are some I did for Ike a couple of years ago, using some of the Sealife Set that she has put up as a prize for this Challenge...

I decided to do two more fat pages today...the first one uses the Shark freebie.

I started with a square of white card attached to my fat page.
I then applied some Pebeo Prisme Fantasy colours and left the page to dry.
These are luminescent colours with honeycomb effects.
I am not sure if you can see this in the photo:

I then added some torn tissue paper and the shark. I printed the shark on some grey textured card and added a bit more colour with a Promarker.

For my second page I used Nietzsche's quote.

Again I started the page with white card, but then dabbed watermark ink through a stencil.
I added gold embossing powder and heat set it.

Next I added peeled paint Distress Oxide to the whole page ( the embossing acted as a resist) and spiced Marmalade round the edges. I then spritzed it with water to add some splashes to the ink.

I then added Tooth and Claw, printed on white card, coloured with Promarkers and cut out.

I will link this to Dream in Darkness August Challenge

Look forward to seeing your creations in Challenge #95...

Happy Crafting!


  1. Gosh - such stunning pieces. The shark looks fabulous with that texture and the background is beautiful.
    I love that quote on the second one and the wonderful stencil. The image is one of my favourite scary ones - a superb creation :-)
    Thank you very much for making these for me at IWC.
