Color Me Creative Classroom Copic Challenge

Good afternoon!  Can't believe this is the first chance I've had today to jump on the computer!  We just got back and I'm popping in to post the card I made for the current Copic Challenge #31 on Suzanne Dean's Color Me Creative Classroom site.  The theme this time is "colors of the sea". 

Here is one of the inspiration photos for the challenge:


Here is my card for the challenge:


I started with a card base of TPC Studios Ocean Blue Shimmer CS and layered with TPC Turquoise Shimmer and a patterned paper called Renoir's Seascape from Paper House Productions.    My mermaid image is called Sounds of The Ocean.  It is available free from Sureya's deviantART gallery here.  I printed her on Cryogen White and colored her with Copics.  I think I bit off a little more than my Copic skills can handle with this one!  I am hair-challenged anyway and that is a lot of hair to color!    I highlighted her eyes and lids with Spica pens. The image panel and mats were cut with Spellbinders Scallop and Classic Petite Oval Nestabilities.  I added a flourish cut from TPC Turquoise Shimmer using the Cheery Lynn Tropical Flourish die.  I airbrushed a white Wild Orchid flower with Copics and added a few branches punched from TPC Studios Grass Green Shimmer CS.  A few Lily Pad Dewdrops finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy what's left of the weekend and hope to see you again soon!
