shells from the Elements Collection from theSusana Love Stamps, Mixed Media Stamps to create the bottom of the ocean. The rays from the Elements Collection was stamped upside down to create the effect of the light shining in through the water.

The fish are created using a corner die from the Dies by SCACD Classic Corners. I cut them out from black cardstock and then used Mica Powders in Pink Azalea and Yellow Rose. The Micas gave them the most glorious shine and shimmer.
