Under the Sea

"Under da sea!  Under da sea!  Everything's better
down where it's wetter. 
 Take it from me!"
--Sebastian, Little Mermaid

The other Crafty Gals and I invite you to come under the sea with us to see if Sebastian really knew what he was talking about.  The theme of this week's challenge is Under the Sea and there are some fabulous projects to inspire you.

Our sponsor this week is Sweet Pea Stamps.  The shop carries both rubber and digital from a huge variety of artists.  The image I used is Seahorses from Teresa Sherman.  I just love that they are holding tails!!  I colored the image with Copics.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut most of the background pieces.  The shell and the seaweed were purchased from the Silhouette store, but I used a drawing of coral to create a cut for the coral pieces.  The clear bubbles are actually vase filler beads called Moon Drops that look just like the dew drops sold in the scrapbooking aisle.  However, you get a huge bag of them and, especially with a craft store coupon, it is a total bargain!  I got the clear ones because I can color them using my Copics to match a project.  I won't be running out of these for a while!!

Pop on over to the Sweet Pea Stamps website and take a look at all of the amazing sea themed stamps that are available.  Join us this week for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the shop.  Wish I could enter the challenge!!
