Can't Wait To Sea You!

This week's challenge to the design team was to use the paper piecing technique. This is a really fun way to color your creations without coloring them!

For my Fishbowl, I paper pieced the water using a darker piece of designer paper that had bubbles and waves on it. I stamped my plant life images from the Fishing For Details set, which I did color with a combination of Copic markers and a white color pencil.

For my sand, I used ScrapHappy Glue and real sand! The paper sort of shows through the sand, but it gives the illusion that you are looking through the glass and see the sand.

I stamped the sea life images on different scraps of designer paper and cut them out.

We hope you can play!! Use code TRCC4 if you upload your card...but be sure to enter your card on the challenge post! There will be a great prize for a lucky participant! Good Luck!!
