Summertime Card

I made this Summertime card challenging myself not only to the summer theme (well, it's very hot and humid in Israel!) but also to overcome my natural perfectionism by tearing papers, instead of cutting them very accurately as I often do.
I managed to actually tear a few papers, and I even enjoyed it!
The background is turquoise CS, and on top of it there's a light blue canvas textured CS.
The sea waves are made of Core'dinations Whitewash CS. It's another canvas textured CS which has great colors and a white wash finish over them. The colors can be revealed when the paper is being torn or sanded.
I tore it to expose the lower blue layer underneath the white wash upper layer.
The 3 layers of seaside sand were made of delicate sanding paper, torn roughly (yes, again!)
Both the sea waves and the seaside sand were glued 3d for extra dimension.
The sun is a combination of one Michael Strong's Cloisonné Circle and 8 Michael Strong's Cloisonné small Triangle pieces. Each one of them was separately stamped with black Stazon ink on bright yellow CS, cut with scissors and glued 3d for extra dimension.
Then I added the fish showing in between the waves.
Michael Strong's Cloisonné Fish was stamped and heat embossed with white EP on a blue CS, and the bubbles coming out of its mouth are half pearls.
The fish was also glued 3d. I sure used a lot of double sided foam tape on this card…
I enclosed photos of side views and closeups. You can enlarge each photo by clicking on it.
