Sea You at School

Hi, everyone! Today I'm sharing a back-to-school card! I made a fun underwater scene and used lots of bright colours! I inked up my adorable Mermaids clear stamps from Pink and Main for the first time and coloured them with Prismacolor pencils.


My card began with a watercolour background, which I die-cut with Gina Marie Stitched Rectangles. The "Sea You" part of the sentiment is from the Mermaids stamp set, and I computer-generated the "at school" words. Then I die-cut with Gina Marie Drop Pennant. I adhered the mermaid, fish, sand-dollar, and starfish, along with a number of clear sequins.  Lastly I added a shell sequin.

I would like to support the following three challenges:
Craftin Desert Divas Watercolour 3/4
djkardkreations AG w NBUS #7 2/3 C5 (stamps and shell sequin are the NBUS items)
Pink and Main Challenge 12 - School 1/3 C3



Please join my celebration candy here!
There are two giveaways to be won!


Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!

A fabulous card Kitty, a super background and great details.
In answer to your question about my blog name - my maiden name was Cotton and my nickname at school was Cotnob so I decided to use it for my blog.
