Under The Sea

Here with a fun project for the current challenge at The Lost Coast Portal to Creativity:  Under the Sea.  For this, I made a shaker card, which I've not done for quite some time and had a lot of fun with.

For my card I used the new Spikey Fish stamp and the Bubbles background stamp, both from Lost Coast Designs.

For my frame, I chose a Gelli print I made using green and yellow acrylic paints and some bubble wrap to make the design in the paint.  I cut a window into the center of the print and attached a piece of clear acrylic, taping it in place on the back side.  I then added two layers of foam tape all around the opening on the back side, making sure there were no gaps in the tape.  I stamped my spikey fish with black StayzOn ink onto a Gelli print scrap mostly in pale green and fussy cut him out.  I gave him a bright turquoise rhinestone for an eye.  I took a piece of pale blue paper and using the Bubble Background stamp, lightly stamped in green ink.  I wanted the bubbles to show but not overwhelm Mr. Fish.

Next I gathered an assortment of sequins in different shapes and sizes and most in shades of green, blue and silver.  I laid those down atop my fish then, removing the backing from the foam tape,  carefully pressed the front down, securing the foam tape firmly around the edges of the opening.  I back this with a white layer and it's done!

You can enter the challenge now through May 30th.   Just be sure to feature some rubber stamping for a chance to win some free stamps from Carmen's Veranda and Lost Coast Designs!
