Double D - Creatures under/in the Sea


Hello Dear Friends!

It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
Diane is our host today and her theme of choice is:
Creatures Under / In the Sea
and here's an inspiration board she has created to help get you started . . .

 What a great & fun theme idea ... thanks Diane!!

While looking through my binder of beachy dies I spotted these adorable Amy Designs 'dolphins' (#ADD10102) and immediately my brain went into create a scene mode!  LOL

I created the sky on my card front using TH oxide 'broken china' ink and a large sponge dauber.  I actually used the ink that remained in the sponge I use for the TH 'mustard seed' oxide ink to create my sun.  I tore a few strips of scrap white card stock then sponged it using TH 'salty ocean' oxide ink to create my ocean waves.

I die cut the dolphins from scraps of white card stock the colored them with a Tombow N-45 Gray Water Based Marker, water and an artist brush.

My sentiment is by Pink Fresh and I've used a Stampscapes 'birds' stamp in the sky.

 Not perfect by any sense of the word, but it was fun to make and hopefully whom ever I send it to will appreciate my efforts lol.

The prize that you'll be playing for this time around is:

 Remember, it's a random draw for the winner so it could be YOU!!
