Under the Sea Fun

Hello! Happy Wednesday!

It's pouring rain here today, a perfect stamping day. Perfect for making an underwater themed card!

I decided I wanted to try some of my new In Colors, which I now love! The blues are just so pretty together. Vibrant, really!

I used my Layers of Color, Under the Sea stamps for the images. The sentiment is from SU!'s Very Punny, an old Sell-a-bration set.

I used my Cuttlebug for the embossed pieces of Baja Breeze and then stamped the images with StazOn ink and colored them in with re-inkers and a blender pen. Each image was then cut out and adhered to the card. The coral pieces have some crystal effects for shine on the white pearl areas. The fish have been adhered with foam tape. The sentiment is framed with styled silver HPH.

Thanks for looking, hope you're having a great Wednesday! Happy Stamping!! :)


Supplies:
Stamps: Layers of Color, Stampin' Up
Paper: SU! Baja Breeze, Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss, White
Ink: Baja, Pacific, Kiwi, StazOn Black
Accessories: Styled silver HPH, crystal effects, Cuttlebug and embossing folder, foam tape
