Let's Shellebrate

Hello there, today I have a card to share that I made back in August for my brother's birthday. I took inspiration from the Underwater Scenes class for this and used the super cute Shell-ebration stamp set from Studio Katia.

I started off by taking a panel of white cardstock. I stamped the turtle, sentiment and presents on to it using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then went ahead and coloured the rest of the panel using Copic Markers (the colours I used are listed below the supplies section). I coloured the background first, and then the stamped images. This did take quite some time but I really enjoyed it.
Once the colouring was complete I added dots of Colourless Blender to make bubbles, I then added a bit of white gel pen on to these to help them stand out more. I also added some white gel pen dots to the sand. The panel was added to a white A2 card base with foam tape. I stamped the 'let's shell-ebrate!' sentiment on the inside of the card to finish it off.
