Tuesday Throwdown Challenge

Tuesday Throwdown Today~~~Our theme is nautical/water so come see the teams great inspiration and join in! I chose this wonderful Michelle Perkette digi image called just breath to create this shadowbox card. I used a swirl cuttlebug folder to emboss the background and then mounted the watercolored, pearl ex and stickled mermaid. I cut out the center with an oval cutter and then a turquoise piece that I scuffed the edges on as a frame. I use a nestie #10 cut in half to create a frame for the sentiment and added some matching brads. I chose that sentiment because its one of my favorites when stuff if overwhelming you and it seemed appropriate for the mermaid. The forground is stamped and drawn in and then watercolored and some stickles to give some shimmer. The water is created by sponging on chalk. The two edges are created with a MS looped punch. I drew the big flower and made a fuzzy center to match the ones on the mermaid and added stickles to glitz it up. Using a lovely aqua with my not so favorite orange as a complement.
