“I like to be…Under the sea 
In an octopus’ garden…In the shade.”
(Beatles)
I live by the sea, I see it everyday from my window at work, my kids snorkel and play in it all year round, I row on it in a whaleboat twice a week….it is part of me.  
I love the sea!
So I couldn’t wait for this fortnights NAUTICAL theme at Fashionable Stamping Challenges!!!
This is my new most favourite card!  The colours are incredible and I hope it shows through ok.
For those of you who have been following Tim’s classes lately, this card is created using the 
 “Perfect Splatter Distress Technique” (Day 9). Love it!!!!
I used every colour that I had that would create the effect of being underwater.
I am really happy with the result.
The other major technique in this card is masking…all the stamps are masked and stamped with black Stayzon Ink on acetate.  It only took one go too!!!
(not an easy feat with acetate and masking)
And the bubbles are done with bleach – because nothing else I tried seemed to work!
The gorgeous shell and seahorse stamps are from Chocolate Baroque.
And that is about all there is to this one…
So remember to pop on over and check out the awesomeness of the Fashionettes and remember to leave some looove.
