My Attempts at Sooting

As detailed below I sealed with a varity of mediums to see which I preferred.... although they all look rather messy :)).

For my ATC I chose to use the packaging tape as the effect is crystal clear and completely sals/protects the sooted image.

I rubbed off the excess soot and inked the remaining card with blues and the fish with green and blue ink.Inked and stamped a key, crystal embossed the whole ATC. stuck a shell embellishment in a corner and added notes stamped from golden textured paper.
