Paper Cupcakes – NO Pattern paper

fisghingajhcopy

WHAT???? No pattern paper allowed?? Yikes!!!   But I’m up for a challenge and that is what it is this week over at Paper Cupcakes.

I used cuttlebug bubbles and Scor Buddy (did some faux plaid) for my background. Colored the image with prismacolor pencils and blended with odorless mineral spirits. Added some stickles to the fish’s scales. Used Mudd Puddles’ sand on the bottom. I wanted a water look to it so I filled in the water with crystal effects, even going over top of the sand. Added some Mudd Puddle shells on the side.

Here is a close up of the image so you can see the water/sand. I had colored the “water” a light blue but it doesn’t show at all after adding the crystal effects.
