Through the Looking Glass or Under the Sea?

How about both? Hi there! Emily Midgett here today sharing a card with almost no stamping, but lots of color and dimension using the new Looking Glass Underwater Reef dies. Let's get started with the details!

I began by die cutting all three windows from the Looking Glass Underwater Reef dies from the center of three pieces of A2 cardstock in shades of Mist, Paradise, and Adriatic. I layered them all together using liquid adhesive, then adhered them to an A2 panel of Nautical cardstock. 

I used the new Ink Blending Brushes to blend some Aegean and Indigo ink around the edge of the Mist card front. I love the combination of these two colors on the pale aqua cardstock...it almost glows! 

I die cut a few shiny, glittery seashells using the new Seashells Fancy Dies (look for these to be restocked in less than a week) and added them in a small cluster to the card front using both liquid and foam adhesive. I white embossed a sentiment from Sea You onto a strip of Adriatic cardstock. The final touch was a few Neutrals Enamel Dots to fill in a few blank spots! 

Well, that's all for my project today. The new ocean-themed images from the latest release are so stunning and such a joy to work with! Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a marvelous day!
