Under The Sea


A sweet little turtle swimming by with a message.


Hi All! If you read my post for Cafe on the 7th you know I have been in the Florida Keys. So what better to color than a cute turtle! Let me apologize also because I believe this set is retired. It does not show up on C.C. Designs website. I did find it on an obscure store I found when I googled the set. I did add that link in the shopping list, keep in mind I know nothing about this store I just wanted to give you an option. 🙂 Now, on with the Show & Tell…


I used some distress resist spray and ink blended the lower left corner and up along the edge. I used distress oxide in three colors with my Rabbit Hole mini blender to create the fun green plant, pairing it with some cut from vellum.


Silver metallic thread behind the turtle adds some dimension and texture.


Along with the bubbles created by the distress resist I added small clear dew drops to create all the air bubbles.

Copic List:

  • ShellL: YG97, YG95, YG93, YG91
