Hello everyone, Anja here today with a sweet underwater scene using the Sea Friends stamp set that features the most adorable mermaids and ocean critters.

First, I created the water background with the help of Distress Oxide Sprays. The colors I picked are Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch. I also sprinkled on some water droplets which I dabbed off with a paper towel. This adds some further texture as it lifts the color here and there.

For the sand hill, I blended Antique Linen and a bit of Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide Ink onto a strip of white cardstock. I added ink splatters with a small paint brush and used one of the Hill and Dale dies to cut the curve at the top.

Next, I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out.

I partly stamped one of the Sea Sentiments onto a piece of white cardstock and die cut a little speech bubble using the versatile Word Bubbles Die. Finally, I assembled the card by adhering everything with liquid glue and thin foam squares.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Wishing you an amazing day!
