I started by coloring the coral in bright pinks and purples to contrast the neutral greens of the tortoise.
After I colored, I used a wavy stencil to add some texture and bluish background to the water. I blended it with three colors of Distress Ink.
Then I ran just the sentiment through my Minc laminator with green foil to give the card some shine.
I finished the tortoise with some funny googly eyes because it made me laugh.
