SC210 Danny Dives

Just having some fun with today's sketch challenge. Actually I was up late last night (doing an amazing card I'll show you tomorrow) and it rolled into today, the sketch challenge, was posted, and I just kept on inking!

I colored these images my usual way with Copics and Prismacolor pencils (except I'm experimenting with Goo Gone instead of baby oil and its working great!). I used my usual Cut then Ink Technique. I masked off the sand and sponged Brilliant Blue at the bottom, then Tempting Turquoise, then Cool Caribbean. Be sure to use lots of ink and blend in circles to get this appearance. The sand was sponged in River Rock. I drew in the ocean floor. Assembled, thought it needed something more so I added some bubbles with a gel pen and some Shimmerz on the fish. Ta da!

Stamps: High Hopes Diver Dan, Findley, and Coral One
Paper: Green Galore
Ink: River Rock, Brilliant Blue, Tempting Turquoise, Cool Caribbean
Accessories: Copics, prismacolor pencils and goo gone, Shimmerz (on fish), white gel pen

Michelle this is just too cute!! Love it!! I do like the goo gone much better than the baby oil but OMS is still my fave!
