To start my card, I cut a piece of heavyweight teal-colored cardstock 5 1/2" x 11", scored in half. Then I cut a piece of navy cardstock 5 1/4" square and a piece of swirly bluegreen patterned paper 5 1/8" square.
Most of the die-cuts on my card come from one single die, Under the Sea -- plus the Clown Fish (which may be currently out-of-stock) die and the Seahorse die -- as well as the word die.
After cutting the pieces, I added some color shading using Copic markers.
Then I went about constructing my scene. That was really a lot of fun. The inset pieces on the seahorse and clown fish were cut from cardstock on which I had already applied some adhesive backing, so inlaying them into the outlines was pretty easy once I had glued down the fish and seahorse onto the card.
Here again is my completed underwater scene.
