Under the Sea with Crafty Cardmakers and More

Hi All
I know, this should have gone live yesterday, but you know how rubbish I am with blogging at the moment so I hope that I will be forgiven :O)
Julie is hosting the challenge this time over at Crafty Cardmakers and More, and she has chosen 'Under the Sea' for her theme. She would like you to create something with Mermaids, Turtles, Fish or other dwellers beneath the waves.
 I chose a lovely Woodware stamp set called Sea Life for the main focus of my card.
I stamped and embossed the three images onto Watercolour card and coloured them using Distress inks and what I call the 'Wet Watercolour technique'.
The background paper has been made using my Creative Palette, bubble wrap and inks.
I added some glossy accents to the stamped images and used some medical gauze under the main panel.
The 'coral' has been made from a piece of acetate (packaging from a newly acquired embossing folder) which I die cut using the fabulous Dreamweaver Leafless Tree. I added a little colour to it using Stazon ink.
The seaweed along the bottom of the panel is a Magnolia stamp that I bought a while ago during one of my 'holiday' visits to Sirstampalot who are one of our fabulous sponsors for this challenge.
Of course I always throw away the packaging so I can't find the code number for it, but Janice and Andy are very good and I 'm sure that they will probably know the number without even looking. Or you could always refer them to my blog for a picture if all else fails.
I had a narrow panel of background paper left over so I decorated the envelope.
Better post this now before another day passes me by. Please don't forget to check out the challenge HERE and show the rest of the team some love.
Night night.
