A Post Just Because.....

Hello my friends: Well,  after fiddling for a while with this card I finally finished it, it's not to enter any challenge, I'm just posting it because I really love this set that arrived yesterday and I wanted to try to make a card like THIS ONE from Jennifer McGuire, I saw this video and I just fell in love with THIS stamp set by Hero Arts. I changed it up a bit to adjust to what I had at hand but, in essence, it's pretty much like hers.

I stamped the fish with SU inks and then, I heat embossed them using only the second stamp, which is the highlights, with Versamark ink and clear embossing powder. In the video Jennifer explains how to achieve the colored embossing without having every single color embossing powder.
The bubbles are from Designs by Ryn and I stamped them with Coastal Cabana ink. 
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


I stamped more bubbles and the sea weed from the set, the small fish and the sentiment are from a retired Flourishes stamp set. 
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Ha! my friend, no coloring, you are correct. She has the dies for this set but I think I can just fussy cut the images.

Aren't they so cute, I can think of a lot of possibilities with this fish.
Thanks Sonny.

Great card Maria, love how you have done this. Always a fan of a bit of acetate to create a different look.

Thanks Aileen, this is a great way to use acetate, the layout, colors and stamping can be changed to suit any other occasion.
