Under The Sea

Wow I can not believe I am doing this but I am going to try!
One down and 5 more to go! The Splendid Stamping With The Greeting Farm is hosting a contest called the CHA Relay. Here is the scoop. On Monday they posted a free digi and you had until 6 PM to post your creation in their Gallery and if you do they will send the next digi and so on and so on for the week. So here is Day 1. Mer Ian.  I think he is adorable.

Now one of my favorite blogs to visit is Randi's The Dark Mermaid. If you have a moment you should take a look at it! She is amazing! I study her art like crazy and she leaves all kinds of great tutes on coloring and answers questions all the time on how she does things.  This card is paying HOMAGE to Randi. I am going to leave a comment for her and hope she will like it!

I colored him with my copics and blended like crazy. Added a few stickled here and there to make him glisten.  I cut the seashells and sea weed out on my cricut and gave them a hit of color with different ink pads and crinkled the edges to give them depth. I chalked the edges of my DP with a deep blue. Added a couple of dew drops and mesh and he was finished.
