If you use a TPS image in your creation you will receive the full $30 to spend on their gorgeous designs, and if you haven’t used a TPS image then you will win 3 Digis of your choice from their site.

I decided to colour up and create today using the very cute ‘Playing Under the Sea’ image.


My image has been printed onto Cryogen White cardstock and coloured with my Copic Markers. The colours I’ve used are: Skin - E11, E00, E000, R20; Tail, shells & headband - B15, BG13, BG11, BG10, Shells, YG01, Y13, Y11; Bubbles - C5, C3, C1, C00; Octopus - YR16, YR14, YR12.

Here’s a closer look…


I’ve used the Classic Circle Nestabilities and CR1248 Marianne Design die to layer my image. My sentiment has been punched out using the Decorative Label Punch.

Stamps: Playing Under The Sea (The Paper Shelter), Teeny Tiny Sentiments (Stampin’ Up)
Card: Smokey Slate & Summer Starfruit (Stampin’ Up), Cryogen Whtie Cardstock
Papers: My Favourite Things 6x6 Paper Pad (My Mind’s Eye)
Ink & Markers: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers
Dies & Punches: Large Classic Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinder), CR1248 (Marianne Design), Decorative Label Punch (Stampin’ Up)
Accessories: Pearls
