Journey in the sea...





Hi again, today is our last sneak peek day at Whimsy. Don't forget about the big release day tomorrow! Today I am featuring Crissy Armstrong's Journey in the Sea. I love this stamp it's so magical and serene. I decided to try my new K & Co. papers. I coloured the image with copics. I used super glittery cardstock. I added some cheesecloth for the under the sea effect and a shell from Nanaimo, BC. The pins I made and the flowers are a mix of Wild Orchid, Michael's and the Dollar Store. Dh says he really likes this one, I usually don't get many comments from him, so he must really like it....lol. Thanks also to Trisha for having the girls over and for the ribbon, you're the best!
I am entering my card at....
