Under the Sea

Hi Everyone, today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I am sharing with you an underwater themed card which would also look great on a scrapbook layout.

On the edge of my card I tattered my second layer with the edge of my scissors. Next I pressed the edge into my Versamark ink pad and heat set some Gold Embossing powder. My word Explore was also heat embossed in gold.

I used a mixture of foliage on the list below to give the look of Seaweed and Coral at the bottom of the sea. On my Princess Tree die I added a little Distress Stickles. My Starfish was shaded with ink and highlighted with a Fineliner pen, as was my Sand Dollar.

My Anchor was shaded with Copics, heat setting a little Distress Powder and a Patina powder for an aged rusty Look.

The detail on the Seahorse dies is incredible. I cut them out in patterned paper adding a little Stickles and Black Liquid Pearls to their eyes.I moulded the shape of them with my fingers for a curved look and mounted onto my card with Silicone Glue.

Finishing off with an accent from the Ships Compass

My wave edger, small shells and pearls.
