Under the Sea Picture Inspiration with Craft

Good morning I am here today to share with you my DT card for CRAFT and this was a real challenge for me. Took me out of my comfort zone. We have a Picture Inspiration Challenge.

Don't forget, there is a maximum of 5 entries per person and it needs to be new work (so created and posted after this challenge has started).

So before you pop along to checkout the prizes and the stunning creations by the team let me share my card.
 now for a side view to show the depth and shape
 close up of the image from Sassy Studio Designs - Syrena

I cut a scallop circle and then cut into the middle so i could make into a cone shape I had previously put it through a ribbler and sprayed it with dylussions blue ink. I punched some fern leaves and glued to the shell. Added some lace to some navy card die punched with a scallop M.S punch and placed onto a card that had been embossed with a fiskers wave plate then chalked. The flowers are from Wild orchid crafts. I used some Cheese cloth to give the effect of a fishing net. The image has been coloured with promarkers and this is the first time i have coloured skin this colour hope you like. I wasnt sure how it would turn out when I started but am fairly pleased with the finish result.
I do hope you like and please leave me a comment and let me know what you think
