The second soon-to-be-relased stamp set that I'm sharing today is called "Under the Sea", illustrated by our own Design Team member Shawne Arnold and includes a stylized fish, seahorse, various seashells, seawood, coral and coordinating sentiments. The colors that I used to create this card came from a photograph of a living room that our CDS Design Team Coordinator, Laurie Wilson supplied. From that we were to be inspired by the colors, design, etc., of the living room. I also had this new K&Co. Designer Paper Collection called "Sea Glass" and it just seemed to fit perfectly the "Inspiration Challenge. I so enjoyed coloring the main stamped image with Copic Sketch Markers and you will, too! For the fish and the coral cluster, I stamped them twice and popped them up on Stampin' Up Dimensionals. You WILL love this stamp set!

I'm liking this set, cute, cute underwater scene you've created here, I wish you'd done a scene challenge card for me last week! I had to make one and mine didn't turn out so good. :) Great colors, great layout as usual. You are one talented stamper lady! And I completely believe that with new knees you'll stamp better than ever.
