Under The Sea - Scrappindipity Swap March 09

I'm so early for a change......
Here's a sneak peek at one of my 6 cards for this months swap.
I have completed my 'under the sea' ATCs for the Scrappindipity monthly atc swap over at flickr.

I decided to go with the vintage girls, because I love them so much. It was a little bit of a challenge for me to get them in the right positioning with the fish.

The background is completed using a faux watercolour technique that Bec developed by messing around and experimenting with inkpads. I love the watercolour blended effect.

The layers have transparancy, collage images and embellishments.

It was a fun swap, and I think I may create a couple more 'sets of six' for this swap - I'm thinking shipwrecks, treasure chests, creatures of the deep, atlantis........ such a variety of things can be done for this months theme.
