Hello Friend


I love the gorgeous images from Designs By Ryn, and I have used three of them for this card. To create it, I pressed distress inks on crumpled foil and laid on wet watercolor paper. You can see this technique in THIS by CraftyPaws:
Distress Ink Watercoloring Tutorial: Collaboration w/Justine Hovey.
I stamped the fish image in Versafine Onyx Black and embossed with SU Clear EP. I masked the fish and stamped the coral image with VersaMark ink and embossed it with Adirondack Lettuce EP. I then stamped the Sea Bubbles image with VersaFine Onyx Black and embossed it with SU clear EP. I partially die cut the bottom of the watercolored panel with one of the dies from PTI's Wet Paint set and stamped Friend from the coordinating stamp set beneath it. I layered four hello die cuts and inlaid them on the die cut panel, added a few sequins and voila!

I am linking this card to the following challenges:

Oh my! I thought I'd left a comment after checking out the link you shared, but apparently, I didn't! My apologies! On the plus side: another chance to gaze at and admire this STUNNING card you've created! The stamp is so eye-catching; your underwater scene, simply lovely!
