For my shaped card I used a stamp from the Keep Swimming Stamp set.  I wanted to give it the shape of a sea shell, so I googled for a free image of a sea shell.  I then made it to the size I wanted and printed it out as a template.  This is also an easel card.  The designer papers are from the Doodlebug - Under The Sea paper pad.  I colored the image with Copics and then layered it onto a embossed background to mimic the waves or movement under the sea. 

I used a variety of dies on this card.  From Spellbinder - Diamondessence Die and a Round die.  From YNS - Ocean Scene and Beach Scene die.  Marianne - Leafy Die.  MFT - Upsy Daisy Die.  After I die cut the Upsy Daisy die, I add more cuts to have more movement to the flowers.  The center of the flowers are seed beads.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
