My mind works in mysterious ways…and in this card I decided to let the octopi go for a ride IN the submarine!
View the video below or over on YT.
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.

I just wrote a brilliant comment which disappeared! Sandy, I loved all your cards, I was so blown away I had to stop and use your links to buy my favourites from our friends at Ellen Hutson before continuing LOL You are such a wonderful inspiration to all and thank you for doing this hop ❤️
As always, even though I don’t comment often, you blow me away with your talent Sandy! I love all your cards, but that sub card is amazing. The underwater scene makes one feel like they are in another sub looking out at this sub. lol Just amazing! Hugs, Brenda
Each of your cards just ROCK!!! I think my favorite is the chicken card. Just my type of humor!
I love this release. Your picnic basket is perfect on that lovely card. Thanks for sharing!
Each of your cards are beyond terrific Sandy. I’d love to see a video of each one as you create such interest in your backgrounds that make the object of the card stand out so much more. Not asking for much am I?… lol I think I could watch you all day if there weren’t other things to attend to. This is one of the best releases I’ve seen in that I want it all. That just doesn’t happen for me. Hats of to you Ellen!
