To create my card I got to play with Beach Boy 1 from Scrapper’s Delights. And I had so much fun bringing him to life too!

To create the sea around him, I used the colours above.

First I dotted close to my image with my darkest colour, then my next lightest shade and so on until I had used all of the colours, ending with the lightest one.

Closer to my image & using my darkest marker, I dotted quite close together. Gradually spacing the dots apart as I got further away from the image.

I was careful also to keep in mind where my lightsource was coming from too. (In this case the bottom.)

Once I had done all my dotting, I took my lightest marker and blended the dots out.

Then I took my colourless blender and worked small circles to create my bubbles. I kept going over them until I was happy.

Then I carefully added shadow using my N4 and B95. The final touch was adding highlights with my signo white uni ball pen.

You can find an amazing step by step over on Rhea’s blog.

She does it slightly differently and with different colours too, as hers is a more feminine image.

I matted onto my yellow Core-dinations card stock, then used my distress tool to roughen the edges.

The design papers are from my Carte Bella Beach Boardwalk Paper Pad.

And my base card I created using two A4 sheets of my navy blue hammer card stock.

The challenges I am entering into with my underwater card are:-

1.  As You Like It – Favourite Land or Sea & Why.  I live by the sea. I love the way it sparkles on a sunny day. The way it reflects the clouds and the mood of the day. The sound of the waves is so soothing. And I cannot imagine being any place else. Smiles.

2.  Wags & Whiskers – Lots Of Layers.

3.  Crafting With Attitude – Anything Goes/Spring Fever.

4.   Hanna & Friends – Dots & Circles. (I hope that my scrubbed circles for the bubbles count.)

5.  Creative Moments – Anything Goes/Teentastic.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Hugs n Happy Crafting Everyone!
