Under the Sea Card by Nina- Marie & a Fond Farewell

Under the Sea Card by Nina-Marie Trapani | Tranquil Tides stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Under the Sea Scene with Nina-Marie

Today we are sharing this amazing under sea scene by Nina-Marie! She created this awesome scene by stamping the fish from our Tranquil Tides stamp set in dye ink and then stamping over them with an embossing ink! By doing this, she was able to create the blended inks over the top without effecting the bright colors of the fish! What a fun idea! I love how the scene has so much dimension with all the layers of ink - it's hard to believe it's only one layer!

I am sad to say that this card marks the LAST post for Nina-Marie as part of our Design Team at Newton's Nook Designs! We have really enjoyed having her on our Team for the last year  -  and we loved her cards even before she was on our team! She has some AMAZING coloring skills and creates the most gorgeous scenes with our cute critter stamps! We are definitely not saying goodbye for good - we hope she can pop in occasionally to inspire us! Meanwhile, you can always visit her over at her blog - Nina-Marie Design - to visit and keep up with her amazing work!

I thought it would be fun to re-share a few of my favorite cards by Nina-Marie:
(although it was really hard to pick just a few since she has so many amazing ones)
