It is an honor to be part of the Hip 2 Be Square Challenge. The challenge is to use Tilda or Edwin on a Square Shaped Card.
I choose to use Pearl Tilda. She is part of the Summer Memories Magnolia Collection (available at www.stampingscrapping.com )
To create an ocean environment, I used glimmer mist. This was my first experience with it. It is a lot of fun and not as messy and I thought. I have avoided the bottles sitting on my shelf because I was fearful of the mess they would create. Today I put on my brave face on and pulled them down. I laid a few paper towels on the kitchen counter and sprayed my white card stock. It took the card stock about 2 hours to dry. It took less than a minute to clean up. I'm so mad at myself for letting them sit on the shelf for so long. I can see that I'm going to be ordering more colors (also available at www.stampingscrapping.com).

Glimmer Mist comes in a rainbow of colors and has little pieces of mica in it. It leaves a shimmer on the surface of the paper. The shades of blue change a bit depending on how the light hits the card. It was the perfect choice to create a underwater world. I used three colors of blue (listed below). I layered them lightest to darkest to give the illusion of light penetrating the water. Lastly I used Staz-On ink to stamp the landscape, animals and verse.
These are the materials I used:
Pearl Tilda by Magnolia
Ocean Floor by Stampscapes
Fish by Stampin Up
Turtles by Mark's Finest Papers
Verse by Great Impressions
Glimmer Mist: Sea Glass, Turquoise Blue and Riptide
Skin: E00, E00, E11, E01

Seahorse: BG09, BG07, BG05, BG02, BG01, BG000
I put a little Illuminate Smooch on Tilda's Tail and some Stardust Stickles around the edges of the card to finish it off.
