Yesterday, I was watching Nat Geo and I saw the beautiful life under the sea in some episode. The colors of water, the sea plants and sea animals... it was all so beautiful that I had to make a card on that and colors at Color Q challenge #200 were just perfect to create the scene I had in my mind. Secondly, I had to decide on a sketch and while surfing through various challenges I came across Fusion challenge #14 and bingo!!! I can create a fusion card :) So her's my card ...
I wanted to give a look where sea plants are in the fore front and sea water is seen in the background. To make this card, I first drew a vertical rectangular panel with hand drawn leaves on lower edge and then cut this out from my card base using a craft knife. They were then inked. Next I took another piece of white card stock to go behind the frame and form the sea. I did sponging to create an ombre effect of the sea using my Memento Dew Drop inks. This panel was stuck from behind on the frame which was already cut out. Rest I hand drew the sea animals, fuzzy cut and colored them. All the elements were stuck on the panel and a few pearls were added as accents :) and sentiment (from My Mind's eye collection) was stamped on a vellum strip and stuck.
