Cards Und More #186 Under The Sea "Wishing You Oceans Of Joy" Card and A Thanks Butterfly Card in Purple n Blue

Tuesday again it means new Challenge at Cards und More this time the theme is Under The Sea. We have also a lovely Sponsor this time from: (A Surprise Prize)

I took my old set clear stamp for Hero Arts the fish set. Then Stamped it inside the Glass Jar from Lawn Fawn stamp set. I colored it with Akashiya SAI.

I took the same sentiment from the same set and for the background I stamped many times the fish with grey Ink.

I also took Tag DIES and embossed it with Embossing Folder Wave on the Blue Cardstock. I adhere the Glass Jar on it with double side tape and added the black and white twine.

I also made this card for the new challenge at Calling All Sistahs 01:

I really love the Photo inspiration on the Challenge Blog:

I think I like all the colors on that photo above. Let me explain how I made my card:

I stamped the butterfly and embossed it with white embossing powder. I colored it with Peerless Transparent Watercolor and one Blue Distress Ink. I took the Peacock Blue that nearly the same shade like the Photo Inspiration above.

I then cut some butterflies to make my own Design Paper Faux Embossed:

I thought I was happy with this card like you can see here:

But then I think I need a bit sprinkle of tiny flowers around the butterflies. What do you think it is more nice as before right?

I added 2 layers Die Cutting Thanks for my vocal sentiment:

Challenges for my second card are:

    2. You were right to add the flowers. I don't know if I woukd have dared to do that, afraid to ruin a good card in case I didn't make it better. You're a risk taker, lol. But it pays off!
