A big congrats to Laura, the newest Featured Stamper (FS749) on Splitcoast! She has a terrific gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the fish theme & bg colors, but changed most everything else. I used different images, dies & a different layout.

For my underwater scene, I used blue-green alcohol ink has some silvery streaks but they’re hard to see here. It was cut in a lg circle & I added a stitched circle frame on top. The lg fish, octopus & sea grasses were colored w/ Copics & die cut. The octopus was cut in half so I could place part over the frame & the rest under it. The tiny fish were die cut out of dk blue & left overs of the same bg. I wanted them to blend into the watery scene. 

Here are the Copics I used on the fish.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Jacqui, the newest Splitcoast Featured Stamper (FS748)! She has a fun gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the slimline layout & triple image arrangement. But I used different images, dies & colors.

All of the pirate/sea creatures were colored & die cut. The white panel was die cut & I cut a slightly larger cobalt blue panel & used a slightly smaller circle die to cut out the insides of the circles. I put the octopus inside a die cut submarine & added a palm tree on the right & just a hint of waves across the bottoms of the triple “portholes”.

Here are the Copics I used (I colored the whole pirate set, so there are a bunch!).

It’s my pleasure to host the 1st Inspiration Challenge of 2012! And we’re to a site called Fancy. After a lot of window shopping, I chose THIS for my inspiration. I loved all the glittery sea color on the fish scale pattern & it reminded me of this slimline die.

For my very glittery & shiny card, I die cut the fish scale once out of silver mirror board & once out of a smooth white glitter card. Before I removed the glitter one from the die, I put tape on the backside to hold all the pieces together. Using Copics, I colored in some of the inside pieces then put the silver frame on top & some of the silver inside pieces. The fish & seaweed were also die cut & I added a little Wink of Stella on the fins.  The silver mirror board is hard to stamp on, so I had to use Stazon for the greeting. For a little added sparkle, I put some stickles on top of the glitter pieces.

Here are the Copics I used:
