You're Fintastic!! High Hopes New Release!

Yay!! I finally got a card done. I have featured some of the stamps that are in the Fabulous blog candy I'm going to be offering..courtesy of the very kind and generous Tina owner of High Hopes Rubber Stamps.

On this card I used Starla Starfish - Burnaby Beluga - Seaweed - You're Fintastic - Sea Floor Background.

I also used the Friday Sketchers sketch. This week Carole from England has created this Fabulous sketch.

The background, Starla Starfish and Burnaby Beluga are on foam dimensionals. For the seaweed piece in the middle ...I cut a slit in the Sea Floor and slipped it in....there is a foam dimensional under the top part of it.

Now...you may notice my seaweed is very colorful and the corals are green.......probably should have been reversed ....but I found a photo on the Internet of a sea floor or something similar and everything was so colorful...I just colored away...and had a blast.

I used Prismacolor pencils and H20's for coloring. I also used acrylic paint and Jaquard Lumiere (pearl) for accents.

Paper - Watercolor, whisper white, bazill CS, basic grey

Ink - Stazon black, versafine black, bashful blue

Accessories - CB corners, pearls, baubles, stitching, glitter, clear stardust pen.

I will be back with Blog Candy very soon in a separate post. Thanks for looking Everyone and your Wonderful comments!!
