Mark’s Finest Papers


Here my card for today’s Blog Hop.
The set used here is “Fishing you were here” now available at Mark’s Finest Papers.
I did the bg with TH’s alcohol ink and ink blender. I love the way the colors made the bg look like water.
I inked the images and sentiment with Palette Noir black and colored the images with Copic markers. I then used some Crystal effects and line cut all of the fishes.
I inked the water weeds in a med. and dark green marker. The sand was made using TH’s distress EP. I then took some of the sea shells I’ve been saving for a mirror frame and added them to the bottom of the card. I also added some gems in different shades of green to create water bubbles.
I worked hard on this one so I hope you like it.
