Under The Sea

A new challenge begins at Stampotique this week and the challenge is to use text in your background, so I went a little bonkers and covered the whole background of my card with ripped up book pages. (Before you think, 'omg she rips up books!!!???', it is a book I loaned out and it was returned to be after being involved with a coffee spill, so now it's being recycled :) )
I then made a square slightly smaller, stamped as shown and cut out the details.

Then it was all about the colouring. I used a mixture of watercolours and Prismacolour pencils and for finishing touches there is some glitter and glossy accents.

The stamps I used are:

All of the current challenge details can be found HERE don't forget, just by having a go, you could win $30/£22 to spend at the Stampotique online store!

Wishing you a lovely day, Sam xxx
