CDS Sneak Peek - Under the Sea

Welcome to day 1 of the Clear Dollar Stamps sneak peeks for the August new releases! Hold on to your horses ladies, because over the next 4 days I have 8 wonderful little creations to share with you! That means multiple postings and I have 3 cards to share with you over the course of the day :)

The first card of the day is one of Shawne Arnold's newest sets called Under the Sea. It's a wonderfully whimsical set full of seaweed, coral, shells sentiments an a few sea critters along the way. I chose the goldfish to match one of this month's Inspiration Design Team challenges.

For this card I have watercoloured the sea-nery *giggle* and then sponged the "ocean" on afterwards. I hand drew the over sized seaweed onto a piece of card stock, sponged it, ran it through my cuttle bug and then heat embossed it with clear powder to make it glossy. I then added some more texture by running some of the designer papers through different cuttlebug embossing folders.

Be sure to hop around on the Design Team's blogs below so that you don't miss any of the sneakie peekie goodness! Don't forget to pop back here to see some of the other sets that I have to show you including one of my newest in the Dreamtime Designs line :)
