I had a little chance to get creative tonight. This cute little submarine is from the WaltzingMouse stamp set called ‘Half Pint Heroes’. Super cute or what?
My inspiration for this came from Kathy Racoosin’s card which she created for her colour palette challenge over at Lily Pad Cards. I was immediately drawn to the background and so have interpreted it in my own way.
I did some masking to create the sea bed (using distress inks) and of course good old Glossy Accents for the port hole. The background was super fiddly but I set myself a challenge and I wasn’t going to let it beat me! I coloured in the submarine with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol.
