Hello Everyone – are you ready for some more ideas using Stampin’ Up Seas the Day and Waves of the Ocean?

I decided to use the images in the stamp set to create an underwater scene. I have to admit this did not go the way I thought it would but in the end it turned out ok.

Check out how I scribbled reinker on the watercolor paper to mimic the background of pattern paper.  Don't miss the details for the procedure I used for the background on this Stampin' Up Seas the Day and Waves of the Ocean.

The original plan for the background did not turn out like I had hoped. I ended up taking an aqua painter and reinker to scribble on the color. At luck would have it, it mimiced the Waves of the Ocean pattern paper.

I used the seaweed image to decorate the inside of the card and the envelope.

I used this seaweed image to create a great underwater scene.  Don't miss the details for the procedure I used for the background on this Stampin' Up Seas the Day and Waves of the Ocean card.

We have lots of underwater sets. This one uses the Whale Done stamp set and the Whale of a Time pattern paper. And how about all the great water images in this card.
