ABC10J22: the letter J with a double challenge of a jungle. I watercolored a jellyfish for my J and didn't get the double challenge this time.
I tried my hand at watercoloring a jellyfish and wasn't sure I would upload this effort but my girls encouraged me to do so. After painting the jellyfish, it needed to be in water so I mixed a couple of the watercolor colors together to create the sea that I ever so carefully painted around the jellyfish.
I heat embossed the sentiment and then decided some seaweed sort of plants would be good. After looking through my dies, I decided that these from the Pretty Pines and the Flourish thinlit sets could be imagined as sea plants. A few sequins for fun and popping up the sentiment and it is done.
Thanks for looking!

Love your idea for J, Catherine. Your watercoloring looks good, depicting movement in the water. I also love your idea for the fronds, and your beautifully embossed sentiment on the eggplant c.s. is a great color to add in to the mix.

Catherine, your wc jellyfish is beautiful. It looks just like it's floating in the water! Love the seaweed and sequins you added to your card! Great sentiment too! I think you've become a skinny dipping wc artist!!!

I am sooo glad you listened to your daughters and uploaded this wonderful card Catherine. I am so impressed you water colored this wonderful jellyfish under the sea. You captured the movement of the water and the jellyfish beautifully. This is a real WOW card for the letter J! ~Karen.
