Sisterhood of Crafters - Water - Water - Water

Hello my friends!

Today I have a card for the new challenge over on The Sisterhood of Crafters!

Our theme, chosen by Diane this time around, is:
(Anything with water)

 As you can see, I went for an UNDER WATER scene.  It was an easy starting point when I spotted a scrap of 'water' designer paper in the drawer ... and it took life from there!

The dies I've used are as follows:

Tutti Designs - Fishing Net (#444)

Tutti Designs - Dies - Fishing Net

Paper Rose - Under the Sea Border (#17523)

Paper Rose - Dies - Under The Sea Border

Paper Rose - Fish Trio (#17328)

Paper Rose - Dies - Fish Trio

Karen Burniston - Sea Animals (Turtle) #1037

 Karen Burniston - Dies - Sea Animals

 Here's a closer look . . .

Coloring on the coral was done using what ink was left on some of my
Tim Holtz distress oxide ink sponge daubers.

Dies used:

Tutti Designs - Seashell Corner (#448)

Tutti Designs - Dies - Seashell Corner
Cottage Cutz - Happy Fish 2  (CCE273)

Little B - Mermaid - Jellyfish (#102413)

 I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun at The Sisterhood of Crafters!

As always, thanks SO MUCH for taking the time to stop by!


  1. Your little underwater scene is adorable Dar but you really must release those fish from the net. ;0) Makes me think of the story of Finding Nemo. Free the fish! haha!

  2. I totally agree with Birgit - such a wonderful card but those fishies in the net look so sad! "Fish are friends, not food!" LOL

  3. Very cool, love what you did with the challenge, the paper is perfect, like how you used the netting, great sea creatures!

  4. Love this Card and the idea with the Fishing Net. So beautiful
    Thank you very much for joining us at the Bastel-Traum Challenge

  12. Lovely under water scene, Darlene. I was trying to find Dory and Nemo, but they must have already escaped the netting :-) Beautiful card, my front, both on the front and on the inside.
