Tiffany Doodles releases 4 new Sea Life digital sets

You'll love these new digital sets from Tiffany Doodles:  Seahorse, Dolphin, Pelican and Sea Turtle.  All of them come with sentiments as well.

I tried my hand at the first three ... Turtles seem to laugh at me when I sit down to color them, but I WILL prevail (some day, snicker). 

My first card is Tiffany's dolphin.  I printed him on same piece as the sentiment and colored him with Copics.  I started with a B91 layer to give it that hint of blue before shading with the C's.  I added a spot of glossy accents for his eye before cutting him 'out of the box', matting on navy and popping up on dimensions.  The background is digital paper.  The waves are created with the Creative Memories wavy cutting board.  I took some green and blue prisma colored pencils to create the swirls and smudged them up with some Gamsol before tracing over them with clear glitter gel pen ... difficult to see in the photo, but adds just that right amount of sparkle.  A Marina Mist ribbon finished it off.

My second card is the Seahorse image - I added a second smaller image and then colored them with Copics.  Glossy accents dots their eyes.  The background paper is from unknown source.  I used a QuicKutz corner flourish and cut pacific corners to match the mat and corner rounded the image panel.  I added some diamond Stickles to the flower and leaves.  The sentiment is from the seahorse set and I rounded the top corners.  Finally, took a piece of white and border punched both sides before adding some Marina Mist ribbon.  I wanted to bring some of the seahorse color, so matted base with some tango.

For my third card, I used the pelican and flipped it before coloring with Copics.  He, too, got his eyes glazed over.  I used the same water paper as the second card, but this time, I took diamond Stickles and traced over some of the swirls to give it a bit of sparkle before wrapping some blue bakers twine.  The sentiment is from the Pelican set, all matted on Pacific Point.  I finished the image panel with a slot punch and a knot of Marina Mist ribbon. 
Lastly, here's what the turtle image looks like - One of these days, you'll see it here, so be sure to check back. 
In the meantime, head over to Tiffany's Store to see what other goodies she has.

Love all three of these, Collette! However, the pelican sentiment reminds me of my mother who never said a slang or offensive word in her life. She loved that little poem but when she said it, she was forced to say, "...don't see how the dickens he can do it!" That ruined the rhyme scheme, of course, but kept her from saying "Hell." ROFL. Great cards to use for the Water theme at OWH. Thanks.
