Saturday sketch card: turtle birthday

For my card today I combined a sketch and a color challenge again.
This seems to be a great combination.

The color challenge is from the 
where I was chosen one of the six last week.
Thank you!


and the sketch challenge is from the

I used these two colors of oxide inks
and a watercolor brush for coloring the turtle.

Stamps used:
Michael Strong coffee steam
Michael Strong cloisonné sea turtle

First the steam and the bubbles in grean
and the turle on another piece of paper.
Coloring the turtle with the inks and cutting out.
I stamped the turtle twice to cut out the schield
of the turtle to add this with foam tape and 
decorating this with sticky gemstones.

The sentiment is from Stampin'funn.
Couldn't resisit decorating the inside too.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!
