Crafty Cardmakers Challenge # 194 Under the Sea or At the Beach


Crafty Cardmakers Challenge # 194  Under the Sea or At the Beach

Time for another fabulous challenge at Crafty Cardmakers.   Judy is hosting the challenge  this fortnight and the theme is either 'Under the Sea' or 'At the Beach'.  Anything you care to enter is fine, a card, a scrap layout, a mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it matches one of the theme's .   Looking forward to seeing your makes!

 I choose 'At the Beach' using a Mo Manning digital image titled  'gloria'. The cardstock is from Stampin' Up, and the designer paper is from a DCWV paper stack called Razzel Dazzle (see here for a previous card using this paper pack). The image was coloured with Prismacolor markers and the skin tones with Copics. The flowers are from my stash and the leafy die cut is from a Cherry Lynn die.
