Sugar Nellie - Under The Sea

Hello Sugary Peeps! 
It's my turn to share with you one of the many stamps from the Sugar Nellie range over at Funkykits or the Etsy store. So for my DT card for this week I thought I would pick something a little but different for me.  This pretty rubber stamp is called 'Under The Sea', isn't she cute.

Here's What I Did
I used an 5" x 5" card blank and pretty First Edition paper in the background. I have to admit I was out of my comfort zone with the underwater side of things, so I tried to keep it simple. So after colouring the gorgeous mermaid and her turtle friend with Copics, I swept across the background firstly with my palest shade of blue, then I added blue green shades getting a little darker each time. I then added lots of different size dots using the same pens colours as in the main characters. To finish I added a die cut flower and some leaves to the corner, plus a little glitter to her pearls.
