MMSC112 -- Summer Time Fish

Hi everyone, It's time for another Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge (MMSC112), which I combined with a Summertime theme.  I used the new "priscillastyles" image called Summer Time Fish.  Isn't it the cutest!  

When I first saw this image an idea popped into my head, and I am thrilled that I was able to get it to come out on paper.  After coloring my image with Copics, I layered on some liquid glass.  For texture, I added some "faux" sand -- just some salt colored with reinkers.  The "water" is Doodle Pantry digi paper from the Little Lighthouse set.  After embossing the card's base and cutting out my layers with the help of dies, it was just a matter of assembling the card and adding some Jolee 's embellishments.  Gosh this was fun to make!

There are some wonderful challenges this week, and I will be entering this card in the following:

Stampin' B's Challenge #118 -- Beach Scene; must include sand.
Crazy 4 Challenges (C4C95) -- Make a summer themed card.
2 Sisters Challenge 47 -- Summer Time Fun

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.  Happy Crafting!
