Special Day

Hi there 🙂 Another Sunday has rolled around, and that means another inspiration project for the Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook group challenge. The challenge theme for June is “Under the Sea”. There are so many beautiful mermaid and sea themed images at Ching-Chou’s Etsy store, that you will really be spoiled for choice!! I chose to use See the Rainbow for my card. I had a friend with a special birthday coming up, so decided to make this for her. 🙂 I colored the image with Copics, using colors that the birthday girl loves. I added some white accents with a Posca pen.

I had some fun with die cuts for the background, using various seaweed and coral cuts in my collection. Before gluing them down, I used the negative space of one as a stencil, and sponged some silver ink coral on the dark blue background. Another die came out for the wave border at the bottom of the card. I used a wavy sentiment stamp, in keeping with the ocean theme. After gluing everything in place, I added a pink die cut seahorse and a whole bunch of Liquid pearl dots 🙂

A pink mat balances everything off to finish the card 🙂

I’d like to enter this in the following:
