Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Under the Sea

Please scroll down for my Penny Black Saturday Challenge DT card.

**********************************
 
It's Andie's turn to choose the theme of the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge this week, and she has chosen:

'Under the Sea'


As it's the last challenge of the month, it's your last chance to be included for the draw for the prize from our fabulous sponsor The Stamping Boutique.

Now, this challenge had me stumped...until I came across these fabulous little fish digi stamps from Hambo...so cute! I decided to make a little underwater scene...and cut the fish out after colouring them with watercolour pencils. I used plain blue and yellow Bazzill card for the background...adding a few air bubbles with a black gel pen for each fish. The 'weeds' are actually bits of a Christmas tree cut using a Marianne Designs Creatables die. To create a bubbly water effect, I overlayed a piece of plastic (recycled from an embossing folder packet), embossed with my Cuttlebug 'Tiny Bubbles' folder. The sentiment is computer generated.


Here's another view...you'll be able to see it clearer if you click to enlarge it:
