Sending you joy and cheer - Aud Sentiments #157 - under the sea + sentiment

Thursday June 9-21 2016
 
Welcome to an new challenge at Aud Sentiments #157
The theme for this two week challenge is Under the sea + sentiment
 

Our sponsor for this card is Aurora Wings
 

As soon as I got this image I knew what I wanted to do.. I chose the image called Mermaid wish.
I took three colors of ranger ink did the water color technique I always use.. I kept going till I got what looked like an underwater scene.. I then colored the image with copics and matched the water color paper. I then die cut the Sending three times out of some more water color paper to give it some depth.. Since she is holding a bottle I chose the sentiment Sending you joy and cheer..
I love the look.  I hope you play along. Theme is under the sea and add a sentiment to the front of your card.
