Hi everyone! Today I have an underwater card to share using all 4 of The Alley Way Stamps May release stamps!

I started by creating a curved mask using a curved edge die, then taped the negative to the top of a 148x105mm piece of Bazzill Coconut Swirl card and inked the sand using Tea Dye distress ink.  I then covered the inked sand with the other part of the mask and inked the water using Salty Ocean and Broken China distress inks.  I stamped the coral from Little Fellas in Memento Love Letter ink, then heat embossed the sentiment from All Washed Up in white.  Then it was just a case of stamping the whale, starfish and clam from Something's Fishy, together with the seaweed from Gill-Friend, and colouring them with Copics (numbers listed above).  I fussy cut them out, added them to the card and ... voila! 

Thanks for stopping by today!
