Day 10, Embellishments

I love embellishments. I also love to hoard them. It seems like when I find something I really like I cannot bare to put it on a card. I know, crazy. Today the idea was to use your copic makers to embellish your card.
I started with an ocean scene using masking paper to cover the whale do I could color the background with ink. I added the bubbles and some wink of Stella and glossy accents. A lot of glossy accents. The card base is wet behind the whale :-D
Second, I tried Jennifer's technique where you stamp in a light ink, color then add white embossed outlines. I don't have a light memento ink do I took a risk and used Stampin' Up's Smokey Slate, stamped of once and let it dry for almost an hour. No smudges. I think for the sake of my nerves, I'll invest in a light memento ink though. I'm thinking I should have used black ink and clear embossing powder or black embossing powder for this image. It looks off in white outline.
