July 2018 Blog Hop

It's time for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop, and here is our inspiration photo. They've just released a few ocean and underwater-themed stamp sets and dies, so I'm sure lots of people will be using them for this hop. I sure am!


And here's my effort, using the "Reef Builder" dies and the "Salt Air Sentiments".
I watercoloured my panel to imitate an underwater scene, and use the dies to create the coral, fish etc. Some Glossy Accents on the fish, as for some bubbles, adds some bling, as well as the Wink of Stella on some of the coral and fish.

I used some pop dots for some dimension, trying to create some depth.

Happy hopping, and as always, thanks for looking!
