Barbara: Hawaii/The Beach

We want to thank all the crafters who entered our recent  "HEARTS" blog hop. We were so excited to see so many wonderful, unique entries. Please check HERE so see who was the winner of the Valentine Gift Basket worth more than $50!!! There is also a challenge winner and 3 entries were chosen as "The top 3."
Now for our next challenge: We want you to design a paper craft project and/or card with the theme: Hawaii or The Beach. Don't you wish your were enjoying the warm sunshine now?? That is so difficult to imagine with 3 more inches of snow expected  to fall today!! I do have to tell you that this image from Michelle Perkett   made it so easy to think of the sunshine to come. Here is my Beach Card:
I added this picture so that you could see the details on the mermaid.

This picture shows the glossy seahorse.

I copied this digital image on a textured card stock. Then I trimmed the sides in silver though I don't think this shows in the picture. The picture is colored with copic markers and highlighted with a sparkly Gelly Roll pen.

DP: K & Company
Image: Michelle Perkett
Coloring: Copic Markers, Gelly Roll Pen
Silver trim: Krylon Silver Leafing Pen
Seahorse: Gloss is CTMH Liquid Glass
