The House That Stamps Built: Anything Goes

Anything goes this week at The House That Stamps Built! I am trying to
make more masculine cards for the new year. This one was a lot of
fun to make.
The background is several blue Distress Oxides with a generous
splattering of water.  I stamped 9718-G, Plant numerous times with
various bright Distress Oxide inks, stamped and embossed
4103-K, Sea Turtle (lg) and colored him with Oxide inks, added and
embossed 9713-E, Bubbles.  An embossed and layered
1113-D, Birthday and a  few Taylored Expressions die cuts.  I was
quite happy with this card.

I hope you will share your creations in our weekly challenge, you might just be the
lucky winner of the monthly drawing for the $25 Repeat Impression's gift
certificate. Each entry gets a chance, two if you use a

That turtle is one of my favorite stamps, and you've created such a fun card with him! Love the way you did your water and included some colorful plants!

Love, love, love this, Donna! Yes, it's masculine, but I think it would work for either gender! I love anything to do with the ocean - this is gorgeous! I love how you stamped the plants along the bottom with different colours, beautiful work!

This is a lovely underwater scene card and reminds me that
I have a similar one that I made at a craft workshop ( ages ago now) and never shown. Hugs Mrs A.

Love your "Anything Goes" card this week. Love this turtle and didn't even know I loved him. On my next wish for sure. Did a great job of coloring and using your distress inks to make the scene look realistic.

What a fabulous card! Definitely masculine and such a great scene! Love the bubbles coming from the turtle, it really makes it look realistic.
