SSS Wednesday Challenge- Fun in the Sun

I happen to have been the lucky winner of YNS Challenge a month ago! Yeah! So I had to play with my winning stamp sets, Keepin’ It Reel! & Mini Mermaid.

YNS challenge 93

I started this card by die cutting two stitched rectangles to create my frame.  I heat embossed the sentiment in black.  Next, I trimmed watercolor paper to fit behind the frames and die cut the top with a wave die.  I inked the watercolor paper with Tim Holtz inks: wilted violetblueprint sketch, & salty ocean for the underwater & broken chinapeacock feathers for the wave & squeezed lemonadefossilized amber, & wild honey for the sky.

I die cut the stitched sunshine and inked with the same colors as the sky.  Next, I die cut the coral and sand from alcohol marker paper and colored with copic markers.  I put it all together and pop dotted the frame above the two scenes and added the sun to the corner and trimmed the edges.

I stamped the mermaid from the YNS mini mermaid stamp set, and the fishes from the Keepin’ It Reel stamp set.  I colored them with copic markers and fussy cut them out.  I then pop dotted the fish and and the mermaid on the card.  For the embellishments, I added Nuvo Jewel blue drops above the fishes.

Inside, I stamped the octopus from the Keepin’ It Reel stamp set, colored with copic markers, and fussy cut him out.  I stamped the sentiment from Craftin Desert Diva Ocean Friends stamp set and heat embossed in black on the stitched rectangle left from the frame made on the outside of the card.  Love when I can reuse leftover dies!

I am so in love with the mermaid and underwater theme!  These cards are so fun to create! Thanks!
