For inspiration challenge 166, which was based on the products at Hunkydoryhome.com, a British retailer. I wasn't feeling too inspired until I found the three animal canvases and clicked on the underwater series http://www.hunkydoryhome.co.uk/hunky...ses-p-429.html
The manatee and fish are black heat embossed. The seaweed is white embossed. The blue paper was made (previously, it was in a drawer) with glossy paper and reinkers. I wanted the focus to be on the images, so I went pretty clean and simple, adding just a little piercing on the bottom.

This is a fun card! The embossing was a great idea, and I love how you colored the paper w/ re-inkers...I have yet to do that. Piercing is nice too...for not being inspired at first, you came up w/ a great card!
