The Charmed Cards & Crafts monthly ATC swap was themed "Seaworld" and OF COURSE I just had to use the brand new papers:
ATC's are based on a piece of cardstock measuring 2.5" x 3.5". I used a sand coloured piece in this size to emulate the sea floor, then cut a fishnet from a fishnet die, and wrapped this around the base.
The tags are from the Stamperia "Seaworld" 12x12 paper pack (we also have the pack in 8x8). I cut these out then glazed them with Stamperia Transparent Crackle Glaze. Once dry the paper had buckled so I adhered the tags onto dark brown cardstock, inked edges then put between heavy books for a couple of hours to ensure they were completely flat and stuck down.
A large eyelet was inserted at the top of the tag and twine inserted. The tag was then mounted onto the fishnet base on foam tape, but using the wet Stamperia Mixed Media glue to ensure a strong hold. The bubbles and metal octopus were likewise adhere with Mixed Media glue. The chipboard sentiment is a Kaisercraft Flourish from the "Nautical" pack.
You can see how the crackle glaze gave a 3-dimensional effect:
The papers you see below my ATC's are all from the paper pad - how amazing are they!!! This pad definitely has the wow factor.
