LOC Underwater World

I love the sound of the ocean as the waves hit the shore, many a summer we have taken our children to the beach and explored the rock pools and the delights that lie within. Hundreds of shells have come home with us over the years and remind us of those beautiful sun soaked days spent in the splendor of God's creation...that slight salty smell lingering in the depths of the shells.

This is just how I felt when I used this Layers of Color set Under the Sea with those gorgeous shells, coral and seaweed. Then to discover this Seahorse - how gorgeous. Making this scene was a pleasure and just came together.

I embossed the blue CS and rubbed a white ink pad over the top, giving the impression of waves and movement. Sponged a Label 1 Nestie and added the embossed coral, which has been cut out. The shells have been coloured with chalks and highlighted with Kindy Glitz, which has become a favourite bling and the Seahorse embossed with bronze and popped up on 3D foam dots. The flourishes are from the Nesties 'Doodle Parts' and the sentiment from

PTI...it fits into the SU Window Slot Punch, which is great!

The final touch was to add the pearls, a favourite embellishment - a must for any underwater scene (or crafter! LOL) and there you have it - one Under Water World!! This card fits the Stamp Something Challenge where we are to use our favourite embellishments - pearls and Kindy Glitz are favoutites of mine. It also fits the ABC Challenge using Die Cuts...

Today we are going out to the local Nurseries and Decor Shops - it's a hard life but someone has to do it!! The day here is beautiful after a night of rain - perfect! I hope your day is a good one! Thank you for looking and for your comments, they always make my day! God bless you!
