Deepest Wishes For A Happy Birthday

Hello crafters!  I started by tappin the Waves stencil to a piece of white card.  I used Clear Texture Paste through the mask.  Without removing the mask, I sprinkled Aqua Lagoon and Golden Mint Pixie Powders on top.  I spritzed it very lightly with water then removed the stencil and set it aside to dry thoroughly.  I cut the Neptune die in both milk card and a bit of leftover pixied card.  I cut the tail from the pixied card and glued it to the white card die cut.  i used a flesh coloured pencil to colour Neptune's face and body.  I seated Neptune with several of the sea grass from the Aquatic Plants die set.  I cut the Deepest Wishes For A Happy Birthday sentiment in black and glued it to the top of the card.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4"  x  7 1/4"  in size,  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, a stunning creation from the deep, the paste on the background that you can see in detail in one of the photos looks amazing, I wonder if Jamie has done a you tube on this, mine never come out that good.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Good Morning Sue. This is a lovely card ... Although the underwater cards are not my thing ... You always give me something different within them that I like. For today it's that beautiful swirly background. Where do you get these ideas from. I can see in one of the photos how deep the texture is. Thankyou Sue. Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone who needs them today.
Kind regards Ann Toppcards in Leeds
Please stay safe and well 🙏.
