Tic Tac Toe Over at SASPC

Words/Stencils/The Sea and a few more see the bottom of this post for the 
details and the link. I started this off by playing with
Bistre god I love this stuff!! a pressi from my son.
Once I had activated the Bistre with water, I  used Deco Art media line 
white crackle paint.
Washes with Phthalo Tourquoise and Quinacridone Gold
& Deco art Ultra-Matt Varnish to seal.
Tripple embossed the fish (Paper artsy mini's) with pewter embossing 
powder the a couple of washes with Deco Arts fluid acrylics
 Quinacridone Gold & Phthalo Turquoise.
Deco Art media crackle paste around the edges.
The circles were done with Finnabair 3D gloss gel and her bubbles stencils,
 little watch parts were dropped into some of the circles before they dried.
The steampunk sign was done using a lolly stick and a garden plant
label. The stamp used is an art journey stamp.
I am not sure if you can see the crackle paint here in-between the bubbles.
Fran-tage embossing powder was sprinkled across and 
heat set from underneath.
The white bubbles is a lost coast stamp and I embossed that in
 white embossing powder. and highlighted the bubbles with
Deco art's liquid glass.
That's it folk's I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I have making it.
don't forget pop over to SASPC and join in with us the

Beautiful. Impressive and a lot of interesting combination of techniques. Can you tell me what Bistre is? I am not understanding or figuring out where it is. I thought it was an ink made from burnt wood, but is there a different product?
