On the Beach/Under the Sea

Happy Tuesday!  It's time for another fun challenge from Creative Card Crew; this fortnight out challenge is "On the Beach/Under the Sea" and our sponsor is Michelle Perkett.  I am using the lovely "Camille"...thank you Michelle!

After printing the image, I started coloring...colored some more...and some more!  I was thinking that this image was a bit too ambitious for me...I really wish I had that natural coloring ability that some people are lucky to have.  I kept on coloring and finally finished...yay!  I used the sketch from Stampin With the Dragon; I used my corner rounder, did some piercing, added ribbon and gems, and applied a bit of glitter to the pink trim.

Image: Michelle Perkett Digital Image
Ink: Printer
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Harvest Gold, SU! Melon Mambo, Fancy Pants Designs DP
Embellies: Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter, Organdy Ribbon (my stash), Kaiser Rhinestones
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Corner Chomper, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I hope you will stop on over to Creative Card Crew and check out the rest of the DT's creations.  Why not play along?  One lucky person will win a prize from Michelle Perkett!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Card Makin' Mamas: 1 Image, 2 Papers, 3 Embellishments (glitter, ribbon, rhinestones)
