Oh how i love the Sea!!!

 WELCOME!!

Hey all, thanks for dropping by. I just have to show you this amazing image from Make It Crafty. I did luck out and received this one as a freebie from Make It Crafty Facebook page..It sure does pay off to follow your favorites online.I have many of her images you should go check Make It Crafty out..i just love all their images..
Let's have a look! 






I colored this one with my promarkers for the most part but did her hair with copics. Did i tell you i just love the sea, ocean and all things fishy..ha ha. I even have a hand painted mural done by me in my bedroom wall of orca whales..they are just so beautiful. On to the card..i embellished this one more than usual but you guessed it i have a few things fish related in my stash. I even went nuts and used real glitter not the Wink of Stella kind but the real messy stuff. I wanted to add needed glitter to her tail which added shine and some dimension as well as texture..there's some crafty words if i ever heard them..ha ha..but it's true!! I had some burlap type material as well that added a nice background to the image for the earthy vibe i was going for..i think it worked...added a few gems, some charms and tags i had from my paper pack...funny i think i used papers from three different paper packs on this one..cool. I usually stick to one as i know it will all match but sometimes you can get lucky..Thanks so much for coming by and i would love to enter a couple challenges with this one..
