Altered Dies #14

Hi and welcome to my blog! I usually show my altered die cards on the first and third Thursdays of each month, but due to being a guest designer this month for Word Art Wednesday I am showing this altered card today. I know many of you hit the beaches or the lake in the summertime. I have made it to the beach once this summer. It certainly feels good to be near water in the middle of the hot summer, so I have made an underwater altered die card today. The background was made by using the salt technique.

I altered a die to make the "coral."  I started with the Blooming Branch die by Memory Box and cut it out using blue glitter card stock and purple card stock.

I layered these on top of each other and added Clementine embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle.

I used Mudd Puddles Sea Glass and Shell Pieces on the bottom of the card. Glisten embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle was also used with them to look like sand. The mermaid is also a Sparkle N Sprinkle stamp.

It was fun making this underwater scene. I hope you enjoyed how I altered the die to look like coral. Have a wonderful and blessed day and keep cool!

The coral is fantastic April, Loce the background too and the use of the mudd puddles at the base of the card. Great underwater scene!
