Scuba Diver - June 2012

For this card, I needed to incorporate Scuba somehow...not an easy task with the stamps, clipart & digis out there. I finally found a digital stamp at www.digidarladesigns.com. I colored it using water color pencils to match my son's tastes. 

The designer paper in the background is a sky scene from DCWV Endless Summer stack. The card itself is DCWV Robin #1. 

I added the shells stamp from Inkadinkadoo's Coastal/marine set. Using a copper and a black ink at the same time, masked and turned it to give a varied sea floor.

The diver is colored, fussy cut, and popped up with dimensionals as well as the fish (stamped from Fiskars Flip n' flop set) 

I couldn't find seaweed I liked, so I cut my own from My Big Ideas Sunshine paper pad.

Finally, I added a variety of gold and tan colored glitter to the bottom along with the air bubbles being dots of glue with a blue green glitter mixture. 

Just goes to show, if what you want isn't out there, you can make it!
