In a Sweet Pea Dream #9 :: Under the Sea

I created this card for The In a Sweet Pea Dream Blog Challenge, Under the Sea.  This is an image by Jennifer Nilsson called Sea Dragon.  He is absolutely adorable, and if you haven’t seen her other stuff, you should head over to Sweet Pea Stamps now and check it out. 

I had a different idea in mind when creating this card. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get it measured out the way I wanted so had to change my plan.  The bottom panel was created using designer paper by Creative Imaginations and cutting the squares of the shells out to create my tiles.  The background paper is from AdornIt.  I cut out the sea dragon and popped him up to add some dimension, however, since he wasn’t the easiest to cut out, I don’t know how soon I will be trying that again!  The little star fish are real.  I buy those at a shell store in St. Augustine. I then added the charm and rhinestones and a little bit of stickles around his “gills” for some sparkle.  Hope you like, thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:  Stamp: Jennifer Nilsson’s Sea Dragon, Sweet Pea Rubber Stamps; Paper: AdornIt and Creative Imaginations.  Charm, Starfish, Twine, Stickles, Rhinestones.  Colored with Copics.
