Today's Sunday CAS challenge from The Outlawz is to feature marine life.
I immediately thought of sea turtles, because I like turtles, but then I remember I had some stamps related to the sea, that I don't use as often, so this was a great opportunity. By the way, I won these stamps from Crafty Secrets about 5 or 6 years ago. It was a giveaway from Scrapscene and I commented on their blog. I swear I did not commented that much in any blog or website because I was really starting with this hobby, but when I found out I won, I was so happy!!!
I stamped the following images: Girl with sand castle and toys, seagulls, crab, lighthouse and the snail shell. Then I softly colored side by side without touching the stamped images with watercolor pencils... beige at bottom, another strip of green/blue, and the rest sky blue. Then with the water brush spread the colors and that's it.
I then put some extra color in the girl's hat and the crab, and bent and inked the corners before glueing in the card base, but being true to the CAS style which means clean and simple... and the design must be ideally without layers and easy to reproduce.
Then I stamped the sentiment... this one's from Unity Stamp Co.
I hope you like my marine life scene.
Have a great Sunday!
