Underwater thoughts

Hi Crafters,

and happy Sunday. I used two more of the acrylic block stamped panels I created last night, to create a very simple one layer card and matching envelope.

I used greens and blues on the clear block and because I laid the panel on the (finally turned on) radiator to dry, my panel got three slightly angled darker streaks. These reminded me of sun rays shining through water, especially after I had stamped the black plant silhouette. So I decided that's what it is, an underwater card.

I added a simple sentiment and a few drops of glossy accents and adhered it all to an off-white card base. I chose off-white, because my watercolor paper isn't bright white either.

Then I decided to use another of the panels to adhere to the front of the envelope. I would have preferred if the envelope had been one layer too, but I don't have large enough sheets of watercolor paper.

Have a great day

I agree, it looks like sunrays through water...I'm actually imagining being underwater and seeing that beautiful pattern you've created so beautifully.
