Today I'm showing you a card as a reminder of the 'Under the Sea' challenge over at craftascene this month. I had lots of fun making this one! I started with some blue card and spritzed it with blue and green sprays - this isn't showing up too well in the photos graphs but you can get the impression. Once that was dry I applied some Imagination Crafts sparkle medium (jade) through an Imagination Crafts Stencil and allowed it to dry before using the same stencil to add a different colour of sparkle medium. Whilst everything was drying I got out some black staz-on and inked up my Lavinia fishy stamps. I added a sandwich of angelina film and fibres to the stamps then greaseproof paper and applied a warm iron. Then I lifted the film and fibre and cut around the images. Finally I punched the bottom part of the card using a martha stewart punch and added the bow and then diecut the happy Birthday using Britania dies.
