Day 7 Birthday fishes Free Friday - Catch the bug birthday bash

Friday January 20, 2017
Day 7 of Catch the bug Birthday Bash.. UNDER THE SEA theme..
Today being Friday its Free Friday.. and the theme for you to follow is a recipe.. 2 bows... 3 layers... 4 pearls

The Free Friday image from
I colored the image with copics and then added some white gel pen dots. I found some fun papers and spayed the background with various colors and went around the outer embossed the turquoise paper. I sprayed the background with different sprays till I got the effect i wanted and went around the edges with Quick Quote chalk ink.  I did glossy accents on the snow bubbles and eyes.. For the Recipe 2 bows.. 3 layers and 4 pearls.. I used a branch die I have from Simon says and it has the option of hanging presents or other items off of it.. I cut off the bows till I only had two.. then I hug pearls off of them and below added another branch and pearl.. I thought the branches looked like coral.. It was kind a hard to add bows to this kind of image but I think I got it to work.. Of course the 3 layers are easy.. Have fun and follow the recipe.. curious to see what you come up with.

Great coloring of the image. We are so blessed for your participation in our last Challenge and would love for you to join us again in our current Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you with this Scripture inspiration from Colossians 2:6-7 which tells us, "So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness." Have a blessed week.
