Hi everyone! Was I complaining about the heat yesterday? Well the good Lord gave me something to really complain about because it got even hotter! Our high yesterday was 105 and the next two weeks look just awful. Wouldn't a vacation to a cooler place be nice about now? Well all the teapotters are going on a cruise! At least that's the theme of this week's teaparty. Wasn't that a nice little segue to today's card? I thought one thing people do when they go on cruises is to go snorkeling and see all the sea life, so here's my card!
I loved Diana Garrison's newest image Tropical Vacation, and it fit so nicely with the teaparty theme that I had to use it!
I colored everything with Copic markers and chalk. I added yellow stickles to the center of the flowers and plain glitter to the sun.
I was going to make some little bubbles for the fish and a big blog fell out right on the fish's snout! It wasn't where I wanted it, but it wasn't worth doing the whole card over! It just kind of looks like he's blowing a bubble! That particular fish is cut out and popped up for a little extra dimension. I left the image large to take up the whole card. I matted it with some forest green, but it kind of looks black in the photo. It's a gorgeous image though, and so fun to color!
