The ocean is calling........

Hi folks, I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the summer so far. I've been on holiday for two weeks and now back on crafting.

Here is today's card....


A friend celebrates his birthday next week and he wants to start diving so I had to make him a card with fishes shouldn't I?
And ofcourse a little underwaterscene would be nice too. Since we have the perfect supplies the card was easily made that way. Hope he likes it.


I started with a white topfolded cardbase. Used the double stitched rectangle dies to get a smaller rectangle out of vellum and another out of white copic friendly cardstock. First I stamped the under the sea cling stamp several times with versamark watermark ink and white heat embossed it. Then I took out the waves stencil and some distress ink to build the background. White heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock and made a fishtail. Colored the two fishes and cut them leaving some white space. Diecut a circle out of vellum and stamped the sentiment and the bubbles and adhered the fishes onto the vellum. To give it some extra interest I used wiggly eyes and wink of stella glitterpen.


Under the sea, All Hands on Deck, Friends and couples and Underwaterlove.
