Addicted to CAS Challenge #137 - Sea

Hi there! It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS and we have an awesome code word to inspire you...Sea! Stephanie is our hostess and as always, Happy Little Stampers is our Sponsor, offering a $20.00 GC for the winner! Also, the fabulous Claire A. is our Guest Designer.

After watching This Video by Laura Bassen, I thought her technique would work perfectly with the SSS waves stencil. I've been hoarding my Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste, and thought I'd better start using it before it dries out :) 
This Mermazing set is new to me, so after I set aside the background, I colored the images with Copic markers. I placed all of my sea creatures inside the oval and added a few Rainstones; the sentiment was embossed with Gold EP, and that was it!

Feel free to stop by the ATCAS Blog and check out all the beautiful cards my teamies created for this challenge...maybe you'll even be inspired to play along!

Thanks so much for stopping by,
