Under the Sea

Another day.  Hope you are all well and enjoying your Wednesday.  I changed my
picture of Niagara Falls, they graced the Falls with blue lights to commemorate the birth of the new Prince....isn't it beautiful!

Today's card is for the challenge at Craft a Scene for July, the theme is Under the Sea.
I thought it would be fun to make a scene showing what was under the water and above the water.

 Click on each image to see under the water better. In real life, you can see the sea life so much better.

This is the under the sea part!
Here is a close up of the scene.  Kids are early morning fishin'
A little bit farther back for perspective.
All of the stamps I used are pretty old, and probably not available anymore.
I used Marvey Matchables for sponging on color.  Stamped with black dye
ink on glossy white card stock.  Colored the fish and turtle and plant
with Tombow Markers.  Punched a circle in a piece of paper and used
the hole as a stencil for the sun.  Just sponged color and a darker tone around
the edge.  Clouds are made using a torn paper towel and sponge applicator.
brush upwards with the sponge applicator from the paper towel onto the card.
Move paper towel as you work downward so pattern isn't the same each time.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Enjoy your Wednesday.  Until later......

Oh My this is just totally beautiful. I love every technique you used. You are rocking for sure. I made Christmas Cards scenes on year and loved playing with ink on photo paper. Everyone turned out different. Haven't touched it since. Now you went and peeked my curiosity again (like you always do.)
