Anticipating my need for masks I started out by stamping the seaweed twice and the small shell 4 times onto the sticky part of post it notes and fussy cutting them out. Then I stamped the seaweed, shells, bubbles and crab onto my art panel using the masks to give some dimension. I added the starfish along the bottom to fill in some gaps and make it feel more grounded. The sentiment was a bit of a happy accident. I had stamped it on a scrap of CS in Calypso Coral ink planning to punch it out but changed my mind and decided to do 'swimmingly' in Pool Party ink. I cleaned the stamp, masked off the bottom word and inked it up with Calypso Coral. I removed the tape I had masked with and used my Pool Party Stampin' Write marker to color the word. After stamping the sentiment I realized that I hadn't done a very thorough job of cleaning the stamp and there was a Calypso Coral shadow around the Pool Party ink. I was quite delighted with the look. I stamped and fussy cut the seahorse and fish then used dimensionals to add them to my art panel and adhered it to a Pool Party layer. The Certainly Celery card base looked too plain so I added bubbles around the outside edges with stamped off once Lucky Limeade ink before I added the card front. I finished with Enamel shapes, using 3 round ones as more bubbles and 2 star shaped ones

Eunice, you've created such a busy and interesting underwater scene! I think the bubbles on the Certainly Celery base are a great addition, as are the enamel dots among the bubbles. Thanks for joining in with us again at As You See It Challenge.

Eunice, your bubbly beach scene boasts some very cute characters! I like the care you took with the masking of the seaweed and the clam shells. Your colours choices are great! Thanks for playing along with us again at As You See It Challenges.
