U is for Under the Sea


Today is the letter U.   I knew immediately what I would do Under the Sea.  I have always been fascinated by the world that occupies the oceans around us.
Not only is there a whole different plant life, but completely different creatures than what we have on land.   Something I have always liked is the amazing colors that the sea provides.
Today, I made a 6 X 6 scrapbook page.
The base of the page is Denim Days and Blue Lagoon Cardstock.  
To make the sand, I cut two piece of Oatmeal Cookie cardstock and ripped the top off and used Oatmeal Cookie Ink to create texture.
I then ripped a piece of Rock Candy cardstock to create a rock and used Rock Candy Ink to add texture as well.
I then used Journey Circles and Whip Cream cardstock to create the bubbles.  I distressed the edges of the "bubbles" with Beach Breeze ink.
I then stamped the sea creatures from the Sea Friends stamp set.  The crab was stamped with Candy Apple ink on Oatmeal Cookie cardstock.  The coral is stamped with Limeade Splash ink on Limeade Splash cardstock.  The starfish was stamped with Hazelnut Blend ink on Oatmeal Cookie Cardstock.  The turtle was stamped with Kiwi Slice ink on Pool Play cardstock.  The fish were stamped with Lemon Drop ink on Whip Cream Cardstock.  Of course all of these pieces were detail cut out.
I finished the page by adding some rhinestones for more bubbles, Journey Sequins-Blue Skies on the turtle's shell and a little drop of Journey Glaze on the fish eyes.  Enjoy!
