Can You Case it Challenge | By the Tide

I am getting back into that Annual catalogue and digging around to find some GEMS that you might have forgotten about. I also love a sketch and have played along with the current Can You Case It challenge blog - but thought I would have another go at it. 

Here is the sketch - 

Here is my card using the By the Tide Stamp set -


I don't usually use the artistic stamps but I love how this has still come up as a modern current card.

Background - First I sponged the background in Pool Party and then on the left hand side some Bermuda Bay. I stamped the coral in both the Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo. Reminds me of the stunning coral we have seen in Thailand, Fiji and the Great Barrier Reef.

The Fish - The fish was fun! I used the aqua pens but didn't allow too much water to come out. I did fussy cut him - but I really don't mind fussy cutting. I also lay him down on a Stampin' Piece Mat and used my simply scored Stylus to push his body in a bit - this made him pop out and look 3D - it's hard to tell in this picture. I mixed up the Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo and just randomly added it in places.

The Bubbles - Can you see the gorgeous little bubbles? Hopefully you can now you are looking. They are the White Perfect Accents - however - I took off the white backing using my piercing tool and then just glued it down with the fine tip glue. Love!

Thanks for checking out my card today! Love hearing from you all. Make sure you check out my Top Pinterest pins for the week tomorrow!
