It ended up taking off from there on adding more circles with the bubbles from the Easy Breezy stamp set and then adding even more circles with the quote bubbles with the sentiments from the Small Sentiments stamp set!
I started my slim line card by trimming thick white cardstock to 8 1/2 x 3 1/2, the perfect size for an 9A envelope! Next, I trimmed some watercolor paper a little smaller than the card front, stamped the bubbles with versamark and heat embossed with white and then die cut into waves. I then inked each section with chipped sapphire, blueprint sketch, and stormy sky to give movement to the waves.
I stamped the sea gulls and wood, colored with copic markers, and fussy cut out. I then pop dotted a few and glued the others to give depth to the card. Next, I cut the quote bubbles using my cameo silhouette, but Create a Smile has a set of speech bubble dies that work perfect for the small sentiments I used. I pop dotted both the speech bubbles and stamped the larger sentiment on a stitched banner, trimmed the end and pop dotted in the middle.
For my embellishments, I added some small clear nuvo drops to the wood next to each sea gull and a few on the banner next to the sentiment.
