Under the Sea

     That song from "The Little Mermaid" keeps playing in my head, Under the sea, under the sea....
I have been humming it while I made today's Great Impressions card, a scene under the sea.

     I started this card by stamping and masking three different Great Impression stamps; Sea Turtles,  E651 Sea Anemones and Swimming Turtles.  Next I used a brayer to create my sea floor and my sea using several different dye inks.  After brayering, I stamped in the sea floor using Great Impressions Sea Shore Stamp.  

    After all that brayering and stamping I started coloring in my images, using my fav Prisma pencils.  I made several extra images so that I could pop all the turtles, some twice, as well as the flowering anemones and some shells.  I added in some white highlights using a white paint pen and then added some crystal Stickles and some shimmer with my glitter pen. I then inked the edges with some dark brown ink and called it done.

     The final step was to pop the scene and mat it onto a piece of turquoise blue paper.
