CD Sunday Challenge - Sea Life

Well, at least that wind has dropped for a while & a moment or two ago the sun was actually shining & now it has become a little overcast again.

This week over at CD Sunday Challenge Blog the theme is - Sea Life. That for me would be a challenge as I don't have a lot to do with the sea in my crafting stash.  But - nonetheless I had to, & did find something.  I remembered that the Jayne Netley Mayhew CD's had some maritime images so I popped the CD in to have a look. 

Here is my card
I loved the image of these two angel fish & knew I had to do something with them.  On a search for some background paper I popped over to some MCS images & spotted this background paper with the word "Fascinate" repeated in different sizes & a description of the word.  To me it just summed up how these two fish looked.

I trimmed the background paper & layered it onto yellow card to pick up the colour in the fish.  I then also trimmed the image of the fishes & layered them onto the yellow card.  From another image of the fish I cut them out individually - but before that I covered the image in Versamark Ink & clear EP - then laid them over the image on double sided sticky pads.  Having decided the layout I needed a little something else & decided on the little pale yellow pearls as bubbles.  I also found some little shell buttons in a box, but they were cream with orange stripes on them.  A-ha! Promarkers to the rescue.  A bright yellow pen & the picture was complete.

The description of Fascinate?
"To attract and hold attentively by a unique power, personal charm, unusual nature, or some other special quality; enthrall"
I would say that sums up those two little fishes, wouldn't you?

Before closing for now, I would like to welcome a new follower - Deborah - thank you for joining me I hope you enjoy your visits.
