Hello everyone!

It's Saturday again and I'm delighted to invite you to a new challenge at 52CCT. This week we're diving to see how the sea creatures prepare for Christmas.

This time, I really wasn't stingy with the colors - I even put a little too much maybe...
The same thing for the glitter, I put a lot of it on!!! Wink of Stella, glitter pens and so on...

For the background I used alcohol inks on Yupo paper. Mermaid, Silver, Cranberry, Citrus and a blending solution.
I applied colors and blending solution very wastefully and blew back and forth with a straw. After drying, which goes relatively fast, I stamped seaweed and a coral. 
The fish, the shells, the starfish and the octopus are stamped on cardstock, colored with alcohol markers, fussy cut and glued on. A lot of work, I know, but it was like I was in a trance, I couldn't stop - things were getting more and more and they were getting smaller and smaller!
I coloured some seaweeds with alcohol markers to make them a bit lighter 

and then I covered everything with Wink of Stella and glitter pens - from tiny starfish to octopus. 
Finally, I put the sentiment on a die-cut strip and gave the octopus a Santa hat.

I hope you like it, and you have just as much fun with the theme as I had!
