You are sublime...

 Hi there!

I've had this idea in my head to make a yellow submarine card using the Merwees #2 set and the Simple Room Pirate Add-on set since back before the clear release last month. I finally found the time to make it happen yesterday and I'm so glad I did. I used a mini slimline die for the card base since the long, narrow shape lends itself to mimicking the similar shape of a submarine. Then all I had to do was stamp a row of the port hole stamp, cut a mask that left the inside window open and add the faces, fish and fin all swimming outside the windows. The fun sentiment was borrowed from an Ellen Hutson submarine stamp set and it perfectly ties the whole story together. I still have a few more card ideas using this clear release that I want to make happen before summer ends, so wish me luck! ;)
