I had created a background on Glossy Paper using several of the Oxide inks. I wanted it to be reminiscent of an underwater seascape and so I used Vintage Photo and Fossilized Amber along the bottom. Then I went a bit wild with a number of colours for the top, including Wilted Violet, Broken China and Faded Jeans (don't those names make you smile?) I was pretty satisfied with the results and so used it for this challenge.
I added some seaweed and fish from the Seaside Shore stamp set. The seaweed I stamped and coloured using Shabby Shutters Distress ink as well as Pear Pizzazz ink. For my fish, I stamped them on a scrap of Whisper White paper and then coloured them in using my markers. They fit in perfectly, don't they? Especially raised up on dimensionals, I think they add a much-needed touch to the scene. Finally I stamped my sentiment using Basic Black ink and then layered the scene onto Bermuda Bay cardstock and then onto Heavy Very Vanilla cardstock.
I hope you'll check out the other fun cards at the Addicted to Cards and More Challenge.
