Under The Sea

Hello friends,

Today’s post is about the new challenge at Double D Challenges with the theme “Creatures Under/In The Sea”. For more information about the challenge and the lovely prize, visit the Double D Challenge blog. Looking forward to see your creation!

My card was inspired by the sea horse and the blue colours in the inspiration photo. I created my background with distress oxide sprays and pixie powders, and then layered it on the base card. I stamped a vertical sentiment (a little bit skewed) on the right side of the card. The coral, shell, star fish and sea horses are then layered on the background. The sea horses are heat embossed with blue embossing powder as well as some of the coral. I finished off with a few clear water droplets.

I also entered my card in the following challenges:
