Under The Sea ~ Cute Card Thursday #25


This week's Cute Card Thursday Challenge is "in the water". I just received my stamps from High Hopes. Their new collection is just gorgeous. I knew that I could use a few of them and create an underwater scene that would fit perfectly with this challenge. I wanted to use my Copic markers to make the scene as vivid as possible. I remember the first time I snorkeled. I was astonished by the pure and vivid colors. In total, I used 3 stamps. The mermaid, the turtle and the coral background. I love the background because there are so many incredible details and it is just all there for you in one stamp! I use some stickles on the mermaid and turtle and held myself back from adding them on everything! Both characters are cut out and popped on with some foam dimensionals to give some depth. It is hard to tell with these pics but the turtle's flipper and the mermaid's tail are bent upwards slightly. I just love the effect!


  • Stamps: High Hopes
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
