For my creations I used the Under the Sea stamp set!!  

Here is my first creation:

The Under the Sea image is colored with copics and mounted behind an oval frame cut with the Stitched Ovals and Ovals dies.  The background is created with the Sunburst background die.  The rays were sponged in Cool Carribbean ink.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

Here is my second creation using the Under the Sea stamp set, also colored in copics!!!

 The sentiment is cut out with the Hello die.  The white layer in the background is cut out with the Flourished Star Pattern die.  The fancy border going down the center is the Beautiful Borders die.

Two lovely cards, Chris! I especially like the first one with the Sunburst.

I really like the sunburst background die and how you sponged the color on it and used an oval die to place your sentiment in. I love the sentiment and the image looks very nice as the colors really gel together with the outside on the Sunburst background. Great coloring again on the 2nd card. Love the stitching and the sliver of the border. The black really accents everything. Nice job.

Oh wow! Love these Chris! Y'all are making me wish I had gotten the dolphins! So pretty!

Grace said...

Oh both are so cute Chris! Your coloring really brought these dolphins to life and I love the details of both! Love the sunburst die with the oval cut outs!

Sandy (Cheesy) said...

These are both great cards, Chris. I love the first one with the 2 oval die cut windows. Must remember that for future use. Also love how you used the sunburst doe there. On the second card, I really like those 2 different papers for the background...........I probably would not have thought to put them together, but I really like how they look.

While I love dolphins, I never would think to create a card with them. I usually think of dolphins as more of a kid card more so than an older person...Your cards are beautifully colored!! I love the sunburst background on the first!! As always, your cards are both so beautifully detailed.
