Under The Sea

As soon as I saw all these gorgeous Rock Pool products, it instantly reminded me of one of my favourite films…Finding Nemo and I just knew that I had to make cards that would capture the feel of “under the sea”…

For my first project, I created an easel card with a little bit of a twist. I made the base a lot bigger than the actual easel card itself, so that it would create the impression of the sea bed and I then used a piece of “Sand” paper from the collection and die cuts from the Rock Pool Collectables pack to cover it.

The easel card is then attached to the base and when you open it, it looks as if the image of the stamped turtle is swimming in the sea, raised above the ocean bed. I finally added Aquamarine Rhinestones to look like water bubbles in the sea.

For the second card, I made my own shadow box from Kraft card and decorated it with paper from the 6.5” Rock Pool paper pad.

I decorated the outside of the box with some more die cuts from the Rock Pool Collectables pack and stamped and coloured the image of the Whale before adding it to the inside section of my box, together with some aquamarine rhinestones.

I hope you like these cards.
