I thought I would give my From Land to Sea set a little love today. I wanted to color this Marlin image. And Swirly Scribbles dies are perfect once again. Great for ocean style cards!

Stamped the marlin onto Shimmer White cardstock using Basic Gray ink. I used mainly markers, drawing directly overtop stamp lines to get the shading. I used the aquapainter to go overtop the lines, blending some of the colors. Pacific Point is the lighter blue shading, I used Night of Navy along the darker areas. So Saffron is the yellowish strip down the center, and I used smoky slate ink with the aquabrush to add just a bit of shading along the underside. I cut the fish out by hand, then used a Pool Party marker around the white edges of the fish. This way you have a little more paper to work with when cutting out, and you can match the cardbase color so as to diminish the cut out line visibility.
Just a couple cut out scribbles for the water lines adhered to the cardbase, stamping the sentiment between them. Adhered the marlin, as well as some clear sequins for bubbles!
