Lawnscaping Challenge #131 - Off Kilter

**This is my second post today!  If you are looking for my Reverse Confetti post, please scroll down**

Hello there!  It's time for another Lawnscaping Challenge!  This one is a fun one!  We are challenging you to use at least one card element on a angle!

We are sponsored by our friends at Ellen Hutson!

For my card today, I used one of my favorites from the new release, Mermaid for You! I am thrilled to see Lawn Fawn adding cute little people images to their lineup, and I love that this stamp set will work so well with a bunch of other Lawn Fawn stamp sets!

I started off by watercoloring a teal background for my underwater scene.  When it was dry, I diecut it with the Small Stitched Rectangles Stackables.  I also cut a piece of kraft cardstock with the same die set, and then cut the diecut on a angle, creating the ocean floor for my scene.  I stamped, colored and diecut a bunch of images from the Mermaid for You stamp set, and diecut them with the coordinating Mermaid For You dies.  I adhered everything to my background, some pieces with a glue pen, and others with foam tape.  I stamped a sentiment from the same set on the bottom right of the scene, added some details with a white gel pen, and then added a scattering of clear dots to looks like bubbles.  Finally, I popped the panel up on a white card base using foam tape.

Oh, this is so sweet! I wouldn't think to put the landscape at an angle, but it looks terrific!
