When I saw the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge : Summer Blues, I had to ponder a while.
Then The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge came on also as : Summer Blues, Showcasing Avery Ellen.
At this point things fell into place in my head. I have this fun set from Avery Elle called That bites.
And I thought the blue water together with the encouraging sentiment , might fight that blue feeling ;-).
I stamped the images with Extreme black ink from My Favorite things and then cut them out and colored them with Spectrum Noir and Triblend markers.
I went for fun bright colors, that would stand out against the backdrop.
For the sea I inkblended Distress Oxides: Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire onto my cardbase, splattered the panel with water and heat set it.
Stamped the sentiment from Avery Elle with Versafine Clair ink and mounted the fish on top with foamtape. I used only two as I found it full enough ;-)
