Swimming with the fishes! High Hope # 47

I am a big High Hopes fan! I think their stamps are fun and whimsical! Very fun to color with my copic markers, which make me feel like an artist! This weeks challenge was to have layers, well I think this card has enough layers and a very cool fun background technique that was a challenge over at SCS this past summer. The SCS challenge was to use rubber bands and emboss with them than brayer over the clear embossing. It reminded me of the ocean and the light coming through the water. There is lots of glitter on the mermaid, as there should be! The little turtle dude has glitter too!
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!
