Anyway, here is this card I made for the Seize the Birthday with a "Toppings" option of WATER and the Match the Sketch challenge, I just change it to a vertical and added the stamped bubbles on the side as the sketch asks for, I hope it's ok., I didn't want to add ribbon or a piece of card stock so the bubbles are there instead.
This sweet image reminds me of Ariel, from the movie "The Little Mermaid", sitting on that rock, surrounded by all the "fish folk" and listening to poor Sebastian trying to convince her that "Under the Sea" life is so much better than up here, I kind of think so too.
As always, I stamped the image onto Canson water color paper and colored it with SU markers, the aqua painters, (I actually bought myself a new set) and added shadows and highlights with my Prismacolor pencils, I'm liking this way of coloring my images a lot.
Here is a close up of this sweet little Ariel, the shells are from a Flourishes set called "Seaside Life".
The shells are stamped, colored, fussy cut and propped with foam dimensionals, the sentiment is from another Flourishes set called "Pinwheels and Popsicles", I used the same set for the sentiment in front, the bubbles are from Designs by Ryn , you can have the stamps mounted or just plain rubber.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.
And here is the banners that inspired this card.
And here are the stamps I used to create this card.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
