Make A Splash - 'Cause You're Fabulous!

A happy Monday to you!  And a special Happy Birthday to Jessica Knutsen of There She Goes Stamps!

Tomorrow is her Birthday and we're hopping to celebrate!  Jessica I hope you have a great time and a great day!  Hugs to you!  And, as always I love your stamps!  :)


Thought I'd do something fun and whimsical for the celebration :)  I pulled out TSG's Make a Splash set and did a little loose watercoloring with Letraset markers to create this underwater scene, cutting out the characters and popping them up.  By loose I mean not overly blended, a little more earthy feeling (if that makes sense :)  I sponged the circle shape adding some seaweed along the bottom to give it an underwater feel, and also adding seaweed to the lower sentiment (from another TSG set - Fabulous).  And I've got a bubbly/circle theme going on in the paper, embossing, shapes and embellishing.  

I used a recent Denconstructing Jen sketch for the layout.  

Now, join us for the rest of this Big Birthday Bash Hop!  Click on the links below!
