What lies beneath
The tight-lipped sea?
Seashell, seashell, sing to me,
What kingdoms hide
In the depths below?

My entry in the Art With No Boundaries challenge, Rhythm of the Sea, has got me in the mood for sea themed cards. Not that I need much encouragement.
Follow the link in my previous post to see what the AWNB team and other artists have done with this challenge; it might inspire you, too. The challenge ends 17 August, so don't wait to check it out.
As the poem above indicates, my fascination with the sea is not recent. The sea is challenging, mysterious fiercely beautiful, and hardly explored. The shadows and colours of the sea are mine.
Details of the card:
Cardstock, SU (Stampin' Up)
Sentiment, SU Seaside Sketches (retired)
Little crabs, SU On the Beach (retired)
Focal image, Stamps Happen, #50031 Collecting Sea Shells
Background uses two Cuttlebug embossing folders; Tiny Bubbles and D'vine Swirls
Used SU Framelits Labels Collection, 3rd largest
I know, I know, the crabs should be red. My crabs were bored with red, so I let them be blue.
