Joanna Sheen DT card

Hiya everybody,

I've had a busy week as I've just sent off some fab summery cards to CM & P for their July issue and I am now currently working on a different set of Joanna Sheen cards so I thought I'd share another of the ones I recently sent off from the new "tales of the ocean" stamp sheets. This I made by stamping the fish images out a few times. The main image cut with circle and layered with a scalloped circle nestie. I coloured in a few extra fish which I used to layer up the image to give a sense on depth. I coloured the fish with my promarkers. There was a small plant stamp which I stamped at the bottom of my circle.

I used my promarkers to add dots to the plantlife to thicken it up a bit. I went over my fish with my sakura clear glaze pen which I really can't get enough of right now! I printed off a wishy washy mossy green paper which I roughly stamped a leafy design down one diagonal half of the paper. I added promarker dots as before. I stamped out the starfish twice and layered it up. The sentiment I stamped from the sheet but cut out all the individual words for impact. I inked all the edges with brushed cordouroy distress ink. I then added a few green gems to the corner. These were a little too bright so I toned them down by colouring over them with my olive green promarker. All the stamps I used were all from the same stamp sheet.
