Sending My Deepest Thanks!

Happy Thursday everyone! It's Rosie here today sharing this card featuring Lawn Fawn dies with Distress Oxide inks. I love making my own background paper and Distress Oxide inks make it so easy and fun!
The links to all of the products used from the Dies R Us Store are shown below. Here is a step-by-step of how I created this card.
The first step in making this card was to create the underwater scene. I rubbed Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink at the bottom of watercolor paper to create the sea bottom. Next, I added Salty Ocean and Mermaid Lagoon.
I felt I needed an additional blue and settled on Broken China Distress Oxide for the top of the paper. Then I added some throughout the middle.
  Next, I spritzed the top with water from a spray bottle, and let it sit for a few seconds.
I then use a paper towel to blot up the excess water. The areas where the water was sitting turns lighter when you blot.
I think the Lawn Fawn Narwhal & Friends Die Set is so adorable and awesome, so it had to come and live with me!! Not only can you create a narwhal, but also a seal and a whale. CUTE right?!!
I, of course, had to go with the unicorn of the sea and made the Narwhal! He's so adorable!!
I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Wave Border die to cut a wave at the top of the blue water color paper. 
Then I decided I needed a watercolor sky. I just used watercolor paper and watercolor markers and made steaks with different colors. Then came in with a water brush and blended the colors together.

The last step was to assemble it all together! The sentiment is from the Lawn Fawn You Are Sublime Stamp Set.
You can see in the side view that I raised the Narwhal on some foam squares for added dimension.
Here are the Dies R Us products used:
