I sure hope that you're enjoying the Blog Hop so far!!! I just can't get enough of these Beach Themed dies and I couldn't resist making a Diorama Card with the Seashell Border , Fish Set and Salt Life dies.
My favourite place to be is near, on or in the Ocean!!!! I have missed my tropical Vakay for the last couple of years and I sure hope that I get there this January. It is definately my Happy place!!! I'd love to hear where your happy place is and if you've travelled to tropical locaations, which one is your fave? Mine so far is Barbados. Love the food, music, people and the confidence in getting around the Island safely. Bajan folks are so warm and welcoming.
To make the card, I cut the dies out of Blue Fern Studio Seaside Cottage Paper. I used Night of Navy Cardstock to create the diorama card. I sponged the fish with Baby Blue Ink, then I used a touch of Cosmic Shimmer Silver Chrome Glitter Kiss. I found that the Navy Paper was a little bit too much on it's own, so I distressed it with Enchanted Gold Gilding Polish. I sponged some Tan Ink on the Salt Life Heading and added a touch of Pralines and cream glitter. Lastly, I added a string of pearls to the bottom of the card. Hope you likey!!!!

How cute is this little Teddy Bear? I think super cute. He can be found in the Beary Sweet Set by Pink Ink for Impression Obsession. I coloured him with my Copic Markers! I didn't have my IO ink pads at that point, so I used SU inks for shading, creating a background and stamping.
The stamp in the background is called Seagrass. I shaded the Mini Shell Set and Sea Birds Dies and of course adding a touch of Pizzazzle!!!!
