My mind works in mysterious ways…and in this card I decided to let the octopi go for a ride IN the submarine!

When watercoloring a background for a card like this, it’s helpful to tilt it at an angle to keep the paint moving – and I turned it upside down so the heavier, darker color is at the bottom of the water.

I loved having the lil critters driving the submarine! Those eyeballs make me GRIN! And can you believe this card was painted with just 3 colors?

The Porthole die was crying out for a bunch of jellyfish and octopi swimming outside! Lots of layers of color plus bubbles with white pen highlights.
