I'm going to start with an apology to the challenge team because I got so excited I didn't photograph my start page.
Honestly, the next time I come along to this challenge I'll remember to record the OLD before I start.
I've also used some very old stamps which were bought many years ago.
My new painting technique is more about water-colours than water-colour pens and I added background stamping.
I can get many more colours by mixing the water-colours and there is a more textured look to the painting.
I inverted the colours, changed the colours in various different ways, adjusted the proportions and gave the whole painting a little frame.
Here is the Dark Sea, with starfish, seaweed and jelly fish.
I'm also linking to my own challenge at "Art Journal Journey" where the theme is "The Sea".
