I really love this card! I used a retired set from Gina K Stamps but I used a fun technique that I learned from Jennifer McGuire called Distress Ink Lifting. I heat embossed the images on a scrap of card stock. I covered the entire scrap with Salty Ocean Distress ink. Then I took water and "painted" the inside of the images and it lifts the color from the image. Then I used other colors of distress ink to kind of fill in the images. I also lifted some of the blue to make it look like there was currents in the water. I added a sentiment from the set. Just love this one and I'll be using this technique again. It was lots of fun. I hope you'll join us this week and play along with our "sea" challenge at the Outlawz CAS.

I am off to do some more crafting today. I have several cards I need finished by the end of the month and that's coming up pretty quickly. So I'm sure I'll be back later today with all my last minute stuff. It never changes. LOL! Have a super Sunday!
