Under the Sea

I am excited to share my Under the Sea themed pocket letter for a swap over at Pocket Letter Pals.  I really enjoyed making the altered clothespin for this one. I wanted to make it like coral and underwater plant life. How did I do?

I used Stampin Up’s Land to Sea stamp set for the jellyfish, swordfish and sea turtles with their white embossing powder. I used the Map stamp and silver embossing powder.  The fish and “coral” in panel 3 are from spellbinders dies.

I was thrilled with how my anchors turned out. I purchased silver postcards years ago and finally had another reason to use them! I love this Spellbinders Inspire die that cut and embossed the anchor. (I put some in the back as goodies for my partner, they are so cool!).IMG_20150809_142154922
“Flowers are made using McGill punches (center blue), a Tim Holtz Tattered Flower (orange), and pieces of a flower cut from shimmery white vellum.IMG_20150809_142126155I added some Distress Stickles in the center of the main flower in the color Marigold, just to give a little extra fun to the flower. I wrapped the entire letter in blue tulle and added navy blue ribbon with anchors on it….I hope my partner enjoys!
