You really can't see the white on the white cardstock but once you add the pigment powers it will pop.
Sprinkle the powers on the paper and then spray with water to active them. Going for a orange/yellow combo here. Dab some of the color from inside the stamped area. Add more layers of color till you get what you intensity you want.

We will start by creating the background page for our seductive mermaid!
Add a layer of Gesso to your journal page or card if working on a separate item. While the Gesso is still wet use a spatula (or your fingers LOL!!!) to adhere the muslin cloth to the page.
Next step is to stamp the mermaid onto an old book page. It's fun to stamp onto a "related" wording page ie. I stamped on a thesaurus page with "ocean" words - the same works for an encyclopaedia page etc. - it's fun to follow the theme with all the added elements to the page!!!
Tear out some wording from your book pages - used here the "siren" related paragraph from the thesaurus. Edge with the same archival ink you stamped your main mermaid image in.
Use a circle stencil and texture paste to add "bubbles" to your page LOL! Allow to dry.
Use ocean coloured ink sprays over the page. Metallic sprays add some nice shine to your page! Use a paper towel roll to absorb excess ink - a great way to make a multi coloured paper towel background for use on another creation!!!!
Arrange your stamped images and extra embellishments to the page and adhere with glue and mounting tape, allow to dry and your have a fab under the sea themed page! Lots of fab mermaid images available at the store to great pages with!
Thanks for stamping with me today!!! Have a creative week!

White Modeling Paste
First, cut 2 squares of paper to make your cards and apply some white modelling paste with a stencil.
When it is dry, colour with watercolour paints, use different colours and add some water with a spray.
Here, my 2 backgrounds.
Then, stamp your fish and colour them with watercolour. Cut them.
Adhere the seashells and the fish. Put some colors on the seashells if you want. Stamp the title on a printed cardstock and adhere it on the card. When it is dry, adhere your cards on a large printed cardstock with double-sided.
Today I would like to show you how I created a Flamingo card for the Under the Sea theme this month. I was a bit out of my element for the projects this month and I am not a big ocean/sea fan. I like to sit in my pool in the summer, fewer animals in my pool and no sand to drag into the house later! I work a lot of hours and I like to have time to create and not spending all my time cleaning house!

Other supplies used -
ink in 3 pink colors
white embossing powder
white watercolor paper
white card base
1. Using the different pink inks, stamp them randomly in a line on a piece of white tissue paper with stamps from the Background Grunge sheet and the Hearty Doodles sheet, then using the black ink, stamp the Open Weave Fishnet in a line on white tissue paper. I used the circles from the Background Grunge stamp and repeatedly stamped them over each other. I used the script stamps from the Correspondence Pens sheet and stamped it in a line on the white tissue paper.
Quick tip - To tear the tissue paper, use a fine line brush with very little water and draw a line down the tissue paper, tear along this line to give you a nice torn edge.
2. Taking one of your stamped tissue pieces, glue it down about 2/3 from the edge of the black cardstock. Repeat with the other two layers.
3. Using the stamp platform, stamp the Flamingo several times onto watercolor paper then color the flamingo with markers. I used several colors over each other to get the effect I was looking for on the feathers. Then fussy cut the flamingo and glue it over the layered tissue paper.
4. Next, using the Dear Beach sentiments the were cut apart, stamp in Versamark ink onto black cardstock and heat emboss with white embossing powder. then trim down to fit across the card front.
This card could be used for any occasion! Don’t forget to check out the stamps at Blank Page Muse.
