Underwater Scenes

I have finally taken the three underwater scenes I colors and made them into cards.  The card itself isn't anything impressive but the whole underwater scene made into a card is rather nice!  Each of the scenes are from Make it Crafty and were all experiments as I tried to capture sun rays shining through the water.

For closer shots and details on each, you can visit my older posts: Underwater Castle, Underwater Mermaid Scene and Underwater Shipwreck.  These were simply layered on white then a coordinating blue cardstock - simple and less than ten minutes to cut and assemble all of them.  So why didn't I do it before?  Well, that IS the question, now isn't it! 

Lastly I have a card to show off that my daughter made with other Make it Crafty images, she used Flower Swing, Sitting Annalise and even the Thanks tag too.  She told me once what the saying was, but I've since forgotten and should have written it down.  But as you can see she has definitely used some of her favorite things... punches, yard/ribbon, and tape!  Some day, just maybe some day, she'll figure out how to use the glue.  :D
