Under the sea at MPS

Hi, Tuesday already so its time for another challenge over at Michelle Perkett Studios, this time our challenge is 'Under the Sea' so I've used Michelle's beautiful digi stamp 'Eva the Glam Mermaid' for this card (you can find Eva and all her beautiful mermaid friends in Michelle's Etsy Store)

Eva is coloured with promarkers and has dots of stickles here and there as she like some bling lol. I made the background by sponging the sun and sky and adding strips of brayers glossy card for the waves. I made the waves using the scrunched paper technique and Big & Juicy waterfall inkpad. I then rubbed a versmark pad over some more scrunched paper, picked it up with the brayer and rolled it over the blue. I added some seafoam white EP and heat embossed, it doesn't show very well on the pic but I'm pleased with the effect. For the 'froth' on top of the waves, I tore the brayered card roughly and glittered the edges with prisma glitter. I framed Eva with some sparkly mirri card (it looks more green in the pic but its a more blue colour IRL), some blue drop gems from my stash and some gorgeous bp from K&Co. The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and they are layered on some die cut flowers made from glimmer misted scrap paper and vellum.

I'm entering Eva in the following challenges:
Creative Cottage: Embossing
ABC Challenge : G is for Glitter
Creative Inspirations: Glitter, glamour, Girly
Craft Your Passion: Anything Goes
Lollipop Crafts: Embossing
