Crafty Cardmakers Challenge # 143- Water

    Hello, today sees the start of the new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and more. Lyn is our hostess for this fortnight and she would like to see your creations that include water.

    For my card I have chosen to make an Under The Sea themed card. The stamps I have used are from Creative Expressions and they have been stamped in Black Archival Ink onto Watercolour card and painted with Spectrum Aqua Markers. I also added some clear Wink of Stella onto the mermaid's tail for some added shimmer.
    The patterned papers I have used are from Joy Crafts 'Under The Sea' paper block. The sand was made by covering a piece of card with Versamark ink then heat embossed with some Stampendous Jeweled Gold embossing powder.
    The sentiment was floating around my stamp box, but I think it is from Personal Impressions and the circles were all cut using Spellbinders dies.
    I finished the card with some clear glitter, some fish buttons and sequins from my stash.

I hope like my card and please check out my fellow DT's blogs as they have made some gorgeous creations.
