Here is my card:
I was inspired by water. My card base and mat are SU Pool Party and the patterned paper is from the Kaisercraft Devonshire 6x6 pad. For the underwater background, I used the Sandy Sea Floor digistamp from Make it Crafty. I printed it on Neenah Solar White and colored it using the Copic background coloring technique that Shelby shared on her blog this week. I used Colorless Blender and my E31 refill for the sand and BG0000 refill for the sea. It's hard to see, but I made some rays of light coming through the sea with Colorless Blender. All the other elements were colored as usual with Copic markers. I added White Opal Liquid Pearls and Crystal Stickles to the bubbles. My fun image is Mermaid from Kenny K. You can find her in the on-line store here. I printed her on Neenah and colored her with my Copics. I used the Glistening Scales technique that Franz shared on the Make it Crafty Store Inspiration Blog. Briefly, after coloring with Copics, I painted the tail with African Jade Twinkling H2Os, then added lots of Crystal Stickles to the scales. A bit more Stickles on the shells and fish finished my card.
Here is a close-up of the mermaid:
I am also entering my card in the Oozak Challenge #6 (sparkle), One Stop Craft Challenge #99 (no floral embellishments) and Whimsy Stamps Challenge #51 (anything goes).
