Today's featured set is another one of my favorites since I love seascapes/undersea stamps as well as scenic ones.  I paired my card with some Basic Grey Lauderdale designer paper along with some Stampin Up! card stock and Scenic Selections.

After stamping my main images from Shello and Scenic Selections in memento tuxedo black onto white card stock and coloring with prismacolor markers, I stamped an additional turtle onto some scrap white card stock, colored then cut out for popping up later.  I then stippled Tim Holtz tumbled glass distress ink around the edges to help fill in the underwater scene before adding some punched EK Success "trees" in brightly colored scraps to use as "coral" before adding some punched crabs using micro glue dots.  Finally after adding the popped up turtle, some punched dolphins/sharks, and faux brads, my card was finished.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.

Stamps: MFP Shello, Scenic Selections
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass
Card Stock: Stampin Up!, Basic Grey Lauderdale Designer Paper
Accessories: Prismacolor Markers, Stipple Brush, Glue Dots, Small Hole Punch, Various Punches, 2-Way Glue Pen
