KLSNS Challenge #21

This week Jacilynn hosted our challenge at KLSNS and she gave us this wonderful sketch to follow:


For my card I decided to do create a scene with Underwater Emma.  This is really an adorable set ~ in addition to the images I used, there are three fish, a small rock, some seaweed and some bubbles. 

I stamped both of my images, colored them with copics and cut them out.  I tore a piece of sandpaper and added it to the bottom of the dark blue Designer Paper to represent the sandy bottom of the sea.  I adhered the rock image adding dimensionals in a few places and then placed Emma on top of it using dimensionals on her tail.  I added stickles to her belt and headband.  I'm not real happy with the picture, as this card definitely looks better in real life.  I had to do a lot of adjusting to get the blues as close as I could to how they actually are, but her hair just doesn't look right now.    

I forgot how hard it is to make a card when you have a bad cold and are grabbing for a tissue every other about taking forever!  I think I am finally over that part, but now I'm starting the coughing stage, so I figure I'll have that for at least another week....darn colds!

Please join us this week, and show us your take on Jacilynn's fun sketch.  This week the top three will win a blinkie for their blog.   

Visit the rest of the DT to see what they have in store for you and be sure to leave them some love while you're there.

And for those wondering, I got the gummy worm costume finished Wednesday.  It's not entirely what I had in mind, but it works, and more importantly fits Ashley, so all is good.  Both of my girls DI teams had a test run for the parents on Thursday night and I have to say the teams did a fantastic job!  Next week will be another busy one with lots of running around with the kids, and then I also have to get ready for out of town guests on the 20th and then Tyler's birthday on the 23rd.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Great card Jodi. I love the sandpaper idea. I will have to try that. I am working on a cold for the last month. So happy it seems to be getting better. Hope yours is too.
