Underwater Scene (Knitty Kitty DT)

Hello, everyone! Before I share my card, I would like to welcome my three new followers - Akshma AkshLeanne, and riliska1 - thank you for joining me!

I just realized that I now have 400 followers - Yay!  I guess you know what that means!  Yes, that's right!  Candy!  I'll start putting something together but I'll wait until I have reached 401. Sometimes I lose followers (yes, it's true; sad face) so I won't celebrate until I've surpassed 400 (happy face)!  So stay tuned!

Today I'm sharing another underwater scene card! This time I have combined my love of the ocean with my love of cats!  This adorable image from Knitty Kitty Digis is called Deep Sea Diver.  I fell in love with this one the moment I saw it - it's so unusual - I don't believe I've seen another underwater cat image or stamp anywhere! Did you notice... he has a fish hook on his tail so he's trying to catch his dinner!  So cute!

I had a lot of fun colouring this image with Prismacolor pencils. I sponged Tumbled Glass Distress Ink around kitty to represent the ocean. I added clear Wink of Stella and then Glossy Accents to kitty's diving mask and also some white gel pen to the air bubbles.

To create my scene, I used a lot of die-cuts: Gina Marie Designs Stitched Circle, Seaweed, Anchor; Taylored Expressions Build a Scene Underwater; Memory Box Loopy Rings; and Lawn Fawn Stitched Landscapes. The ocean-patterned paper is from a MAMBI kit that I found at Dollarama earlier this year/last year.  As for the awesome sand-patterned paper, I searched my stash and found some leftover scraps - this paper is at least 10 years old!  The cute fish stickers and charms were also in my old stash! Lastly, the ticket sentiment is from Digital Delights Ticket Sentiments.

I love the bubbly spotlight effect of the stamp as part of the scene, so clever! And he fits perfectly! Sand paper is fab, proving hoarding all old paper is the right thing to do! Lol. Annabel x
