Under the Sea

 I have been wanting to use this digi from Karen's Doodles for a while.  I finally saw a challenge I could use it for at Crafty Calendar.  It's "Under the Sea."  I figured it would be a fun project for a Saturday afternoon.

It's so warm here in Arizona today.  I definitely could use some cooling down in the ocean.  The ocean is where I learned to swim.  I grew up within walking distance from a beach on the Atlantic Ocean.  What fun! 

The paper is from K & Company.  The solids are from DCWV.  Of course I colored her with Copics.  I used some colored crystals to decorate her scales,  The bubbles I found at Big Lots over a year ago.  I saw them on sale for fifty cents.  I had no idea what I would use them for, but I couldn't pass up the bargain.  They are ideal for this card.  I felt like it still needed something.  I looked for a SVG file to cut some seaweed and couldn't find one so I decided to hand cut it. I cut three separate layers and glued them over each other. I like the 3D effect.

Copics:  B02, BG0000, BG000, BG10, BG11, BG13, BG15, E00, E02, E53, E55, E57, G14, R20, R22, Y17, YR12
