Swimming By

Hello lovely peeps

Just popping by to show you the card I've made with one of the July images for the Bloobel Progressive Challenge - this one is Swimming Diver.

I pulled her into Craft Artist and added a background paper from the Starfish and Sandcastles Collection by Polkadoodles.

To make it look like she was swimming among the fishes I added one of the separate fish embellishments and placed it in front of her.

I added a sentiment using the alphabet from the Daisytrail Flora and Fauna digikit then rotated everything so that I could fold and cut my A4 sheet down to make the card base.

After printing off onto Super Smooth card I coloured the diver in with Promarkers
Hair: Cocoa, Cinnamon
Skin: Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Blush
Wetsuit: Black, Cool Grey 4 & 5
Flippers and Goggles: Marvi Y615, Tulip yellow, Buttercup
Bubbles: Tan, Duck Egg, white gel pen

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-

  3. I agree with Anne the bringing the extra fish to the front was a very good idea and I like the bokeh background. Thanks for sharing with CHN patterned paper challenge.
