Swim By Anytime

Hello! I'm getting in a very quick post as a last minute attempt to get a card in for the current Copic UK Facebook Group challenge. As usual it's anything goes, but with additional challenge of paper piecing with some Copic colouring on top. Now you know I love paper piecing, and finally I got round to it - only 4 hours to go!

I finally used this adorable diver set from Clearly Besotted called Under the Sea which I hadn't used before - yay for NBUS! - and stamped it onto different pieces of scrap cardstock. I think it's all Lawn Fawn. I stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black as I knew I was using my Copics on it later. I stamped his head and hands onto Copic card stock and coloured his head and hands with Copics.

I fussy cut, and I fussy cut, and I fussy cut some more! I then happened across a blue card blank I'd cut ages ago but decided wasn't right for the card. Well, it was perfect for this one. I stamped the diver onto it and with some acrylic glue, stuck all the pieces on top. I added the jelly fish, seaweed and fish around him. I then added a bit of added colour with my Copics, but you really can't see the different in the pictures I'm afraid. I was quite cautious, except with the choice of orange for the fish and jelly fish!!

I then took a wave stencil (mine is from Create a Smile) and with a piece of cut n dry foam, dabbed on some white pigment ink to give some added texture.

The sentiment is also from the set and just stamped using VersaFine Onyx Black onto some white card stock.

I'm linking this up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #51 which is Anything Goes and also Pixie's Snippets Playground Challenge #329 which I haven't played in for a while and is perfect for this card.

Thank you all for visiting today and Happy Crafting :)

How cute!! Love this little scene, and glad you got around to using this adorable set. I think the divers little plaid suit is fab! How you fussy cut the hands and jellyfish is beyond me. I might just send you all my stuff for fussy cutting in future!! Lisa xx
