Underwater Scene 2

Hi, everyone!  Before I share my card, I would like to welcome my newest follower - Janet McLaughlin - thank you for joining me!

Today I made another underwater scene using adorable sea creatures from Your Next Stamp - Sea Creatures Set Two. I coloured them with Bic Mark-its and then die-cut with the coordinating dies.  Check out the cool background!  Colouring pages are all the rage now and I just won this one from Digistamps4Joy (thank you, Margy!). It's called Underwater Fantasy. This will be a lot of fun to colour but in the meantime it makes a great background! I resized it to fit my card and then die-cut with Gina Marie Designs Stitched Rectangles.


The sentiment is from Your Next Stamp - Woodland Cuties.  I heat-embossed it in white on a black scrap, die-cut it with Memory Box Pinpoint Rectangle Layers, and popped it up with foam tape.

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


I adhered the cute sea creatures and then finished off the card with a number of sequins from my stash to mimic the sketch.

Another wonderful underwater card! Leaving the background uncolored adds detail but lets the main sea creatures stand out, very clever. You do a fantastic job creating scene cards!!!
