Cards in the Sea

I am in love with these cards!! I made the background (coloring pages) using digi stamps from Stamp Prints.  This is the Under the Sea set.

I created these cards for the Decorate to Celebrate challenge site - Challenge #19.  This challenge is sponsored by Stamp Prints.  I didn't want to make a regular card so I stepped out the box making the digis into a "coloring page" and even made some charms using Shrinky Dinks.  Took these cards up to the WOW Factor!

I have been holding out on the whole coloring book for adults frenzy.  I just can't wrap my head around coloring...I mean, who has the time?  If I'm coloring, it's going to be for a specific project.  BUT...some of these pages are so amazing!  LOL. I still haven't bought any, but the idea behind these cards is similar.  I made the digis very small and covered an entire page with them.  I colored the images in using water-color pencils.  Then I used blue watercolor paint to fill in between.

I sprayed some white acrylic paint and pearl glimmer mist all over; cut in four pieces.  I used a combination of Wink of Stella, gold metallic thread, silver & gold washi tapes, and doilies.

Be sure to head over to the Decorate to Celebrate challenge site to join the fun!
