Now on to my card. I was so excited to see this sweetie pie riding along in a shell. I adore seashells - they are just one of the miracles of life. I instantly knew that I wanted to create a scene and I started out by using a Louby Lou underwater digital stamp which I printed twice, once onto the solid water looking paper as the background and then again onto a subtle pattern paper. I cut out the images on the patterned paper and then used the background print as a guideline for placement. I wanted it to appear that this little mermaid had floated on her shell to the bottom of the sea. After I had my background finished I stamped Pebble onto Copics X-Press It cardstock, colored with Copics and then cut out. I attached to the scene using pop dots to give it a floating look. All patterned paper and chipboard buttons are from an older Crate Paper collection, Blue Hill. I thought the buttons looked somewhat like starfish.
