Under the Sea

     I certainly have been on a sea foam green kick this week but it just works so well for this image from the Sasayaki Glitter FB progressive challenge.  Need I say that I've been humming "Under the Sea" from Disney's 'Little Mermaid' every since I first saw it?


     This time I colored the image with chalk markers and I used regular chalk to color the water.  I also added glitter ink to the bubbles for a touch of sparkle.

     I used a Memory Box stitched, scalloped die to cut the image and each of the three background pieces.  The sentiment is printed, hand cut and matted, then hand cut again.  The starfish and the octopus (don't you just adore her little bow?) have been in my collection of embellishments for a couple of years and this just seemed to be the perfect place to use them.  They are actually buttons with the shanks cut off the back.  The fact that they're 3D adds some wonderful texture, too.
