Card of the Day-Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!
Today's card for the Enjoy Michael Strong Stamps Yahoo group is a sea card
made with a  painted watercolor background from my stash.

I used Hero Arts woodland branches to substitute for aquatic plants.
To ink the stamp, I placed mermaid lagoon ink directly on my craft sheet, 
spritzed with a bit of water 
then pressed the stamp into that wet puddle before stamping.
Reminds me of motion and cool things growing in the sea.

Stamped Mike's Seaweed stamp with Brilliance pearlescent lime.
I hope it gives a bit of depth to the scene.

Stamped Mike's little fish from the mini cloisonne creatures set
with mermaid lagoon ink,
sponged the edges and fussy cut, adhering with dimensional foam.
Added gemstones to the fish and some "fun fur yarn" at the top.
Thank you for visiting!
