Sea Turtles

I love turtles, all kinds, but especially sea turtles. I think they look so majestic swimming through the water, so peaceful and serene. This was another stamp that I got when we were on vacation in Indiana, and I think one of the last ones that hadn't been inked up yet. The stamp is from Great Impressions.I wanted to create a background that looked like water. I painted with Twinkling H20s, using several shades of blue and a couple of greens, then after that dried, I stamped my image. The turtles were stamped twice, colored with Prisma markers and then I used pop dots for dimension. You can see some of the shimmer in my water, but in person it is very shimmery. To finish off the card I attached some pretend dew drops across the top. Have a great night!
