This week’s Make The Cards Challenge is a beach themed challenge!

This past winter, I’ve seen such a variety of sea creatures off the dock at our house, that I think more about what is under the water now than I ever did before.

For my beach themed card, I created an underwater beach scene!

This is a stamp set that I have had in my stash for a bit from Gerda Steiner Designs.  I loved the submersible and will definitely send this card to my daughter since her research focuses on field robotics, specifically the underwater kind.

I actually stamped the scene and colored the images in with my Copics.

Then I created masks to cover each image and ink blended the background.

I traced a wave pattern using my Sunny Studios Catch a Wave die and then ink blended Peacock Feathers and Broken China distress inks for the ocean water.  I used Tumbled Glass for the sky.  I hand cut two clouds and added some BV0000 and C00 to give the clouds some dimension.

A few gel pen details finished off this fun card!
