Just *Swimming* Hello!

Hello there..Happy Sunday!!

Slowly getting back into the crafting groove- I managed to clean off my craft desk this weekend (larger than a 6" square of space!) and squeezed in some time to do some coloring and actually make some cards!

The first one for Lawnscaping Challenge's newest challenge...


Who doesn't love a little sparkle on their cards?  I decided to use some under the sea themed stamps for my card (I *need* to get my hands on that new Mermaid for You set!)  I put together the happy clam from Year Six, with the jelly an starfish from So Jelly to create this little scene...

Just Swimming

I originally had done the whole scene on one layer, but it was too long for me to fit it onto a card layout that I liked, so I carefully trimmed the sandy portion with the clam & starfish to shorten it and popped it up with some foam tape for more dimension.

I colored it all with my trusty copics and THEN covered the entire thing with sparkle using a Spectrum Noir sparkle pen in clear- It was hard to capture the sparkle in my 'usual' spot, so I took my card outside to let the sparkle shine!

Swimming Hello

I made up my own sentiment by stamping the word 'swimming' using Claire's ABCs and added the 'just' & 'hello' from Everyday Sayings by Hero Arts- does it even make sense? It did in my head while I was making it- but now that I think about it... hmm

Thanks for stopping by!
