Happy Monday morning!  I thought this card would be great for a Monday morning.  I'm really into sentiments and I love this one.  We should all start off our week on a positive note - what a wonderful world!

The background on this card is made using the same technique I described Friday, but I used regular Distress Inks for the blue colors.  I love how luminous they are - they are translucent rather than more opaque like the oxide inks used Friday.  You can see the difference in the sand at the bottom.  I used the oxide inks there and they give a totally different effect.  I also added "bubbles" to the background by using a dot stencil and several colors of the ink along with heat embossing the dots with clear embossing powder.  The sentiment is embossed in gold.

I colored the mermaid, the clown fish and the shell with Copic markers.  Her tail, the fish and shell are all covered in several coats of Wink of Stella.  I added glossy accents to the fish to give him some additional shine.  All are cut out using the dies for this set and popped off the card using dimensional dots.
