Uunder The Sea

Well If I'm not entirely happy with this card, if I could make it over again I would remove the roses. I have not followed a particular sketch but have used up lots of scraps of paper and card. I decided to go with the twisted easel fold as it's slightly different and a little special. Anyway inspired by "Passion For Promarkers" challenge all the 2's. My 2's are : 2 colours on image, 2 roses, 2 swirls of pearls and 2 swirls of gems, 2 stamps image and sentiment.

The stamped image is from "Kraftin Kimmie Stamps" and she has been coloured with my promarkers: Grass, Forest Green, Holly, satin, blush, dusky pink, mandarin, orange, aubergine, purple and coral. I have added some coral pearls to her headress and highlighted her cheeks with my white gel pen.

I added some gems and pearls in wavy  lines to look like the coral and reeds on the ocean bed. I used my square and Fleur De Lis square nesties and the roses are from "Wild Orchard Crafts". The sentiment stamp has been cut out with circle and scalloped circle nesties and is from "Lili Of The Valley Stamps".

The papers are scraps of "Basic Grey" and "Craft Creations" and the card is from the "Paper Mill Shop".


I am entering this card into the following challenges:
