Under Sea Christmas

     Do fish and sea horses and turtles decorate their Christmas trees and share candy canes for Christmas?   They do if they live over at Lacy Sunshine and the proof is in this cute image you see below. :-D


     I printed the image twice, colored one with ProMarkers and fussy cut the turtle.  The second one, I did a very light wash of pale green over the entire thing, die cut it, and added sparkle to the bubbles.  I layered the turtle onto it using dimensional dots and pasted on the sentiment and bow.

     Both papers are from my Christmas stash and the stripes are embossed and glittered.  Everything is adhered to a white CS base.

     OK, one more Christmas card is now in my overflowing stash.  It's not that I really needed to do another Christmas card right now but I just couldn't resist playing with this fun turtle.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

That image is sooo adorable and love all the coloring and cutting that you did. Those extra little things you did make it very special and detailed. Wasn't quite understanding doing the image twice...is there another card I didn't see or is it the first layer.

Teresa Arsenault said...
