Underwater Scene

Hello, everyone!  Today I've made an underwater scene using sea creatures from Your Next Stamp!  I coloured the turtle from Sea Creatures Set One and the fish and starfish from Sea Creatures Set Two with Bic Mark-its and then cut with the coordinating dies.


My card began with an underwater background using Zig watercolour markers (Persian Green, Turquoise Green, Green, and Cobalt Blue). I enjoy making these backgrounds - it's very relaxing - and I like to make each one different.  Here are two previous variations I made:  shark card / mermaid card.  Then I die-cut the background with Avery Elle Wonky Stitches.


I was inspired by the sketch at Your Next Stamp Challenge 44:

YNSSketch44

I heat-embossed a sentiment from Your Next Stamp - Oh, Deer! in white and die-cut with the banner from Avery Elle Wonky Stitches.  I shaped the sentiment to fit the banner.  To mimic the sketch, I adhered some rings from Memory Box Loopy Rings - I think they look like bubbles! To finish off the card, I stamped some bubbles and fish (Newton's Nook) in black and added a number of clear sequins from my stash.
