So Jelly!

I'm playing along with the Lawnscaping Challenge today. The challenge is to add some sparkle and shine to your project and I love, love, love adding sequins to most projects. Here's what I came up with this time!

 I created a watercolor background using distress inks and then splotched some water over the top of the panel and pulled it away with a paper towel to get those lighter marks that look like bubbles. I cut a frame from Baked Brown Sugar cardstock to make it look like you're looking into a large Aquarium. I stamped each image and then colored them with copics. I added some Clear Wink of Stella to my starfish, but the photo doesn't pick up the shimmer. I finished off my card with a heat embossed sentiment on some vellum that was attached to the back of the frame. I popped the frame up off the card with some dimensional adhesive and then attached some translucent sequins.
