Watercolor Fun!

Hey guys!

This is Sammy filling in for Claudia. I had some trouble logging into my account so I have to use my mom's.

Anyway onto the card! My card is called watercolor fun! I always love the ocean/sea life theme stamps. I had never really seen an underwater themed card with boats! So off I went! As all of us know the blendablities are no longer. :( So I started with watercolor paper and an aqua pen! I soaked the water thoroughly. Then I started painting with Lost Lagoon, then blended the middle with island indigo and finally ending with night of navy. Once I got the color and shading I wanted, I let the paper dry. I then stamped the boat from the open sea in memento so that only the top of the boat showed. Using gorgeous grunge I stamped off in night of navy at the bottom of the page then again at the top of the page with island indigo so that it looked like air bubbles. I wanted it to look like the colors got lighter closer to the top. Finally, I stamped the school of fish (cause we all know there is a ton of fish down there!) in the silver and just placed them all over the page. Once everything was dry I glued the watercolor paper to the back card, which was night of navy. Lastly, I stamped my greeting and used a dementional to pop the greeting off the paper! Then ta-da! You have an underwater card.

Hope everyone enjoyed it. :)
