In the ocean

It's Thursday and Oldie but Goodie day over at Catch the Bug.
It's very hot and I envy this little monkey his dip in the ocean.
I made a pocket of vellum to make the water and stitched it closed after adding a few fish and starfish sequins. I ct the image in two to pop the upper part on foam on the water surface.

This card is also for:

You are a genius, Pia!! The way you made the water adding fishes and starfishes is so clever, as well the two parts of the monkey's body to give him the appearance of a part underwater!!! And I have to say that your stitching looks just PERFECT! It's really a cute and fun card!! I would pin it, but Pinterst today isn't working for me, I don't know why :(

Brilliant card Pia, putting his bottom half behind the vellum with the fish gives extra dimension and it looks so realistic great card

This monkey is just too darn cute! I love the underwater details with the vellum! Very clever and fun! Hope you are doing well! HUGS

Seems ages since I paid you a visit Pia... I don't know where my time goes. Travel, home, washing, packing, travel! That's it at the moment.
Sorry to hear about your father in law too.
