StampInsanity Stamps Challenge #17 - Water, Water, Everywhere!

Good early morning to all of you :)
It's going to be a fab Thursday full of fun challenges!!!

Today we bring you another StampInsanity Challenge!

This week's theme is...
Water, Water, Everywhere!

Here's what Beth said:
"This week we are continuing on with our little celebration of summer ~ letting our mind be inspired by WATER! Do you immediately think of a pool, with the cool aqua & white tones? Or the tropical turquoise and white sand beaches? Or are you a Northern girl and think about the sea foam green seas and the darker sand of the rocky shores?
Tell us about it and let your Grooviness carry you away!"

Here's my card using "Beach Babe Morgan"...

When I think of the water, the ocean - I think of sky blue, almost white, see-through, clean, sparkling, relaxing, peaceful...

I used a small piece of Nikki Sivils Willowbee DP with some sparkling light and dark blue Bazzill CS; along with a small piece of cork for some clean beach sand... created my waves with my MFT Scalloped Scallop Die-namic Die and layered it all up :)

This is the first time that I ever created the card before coloring my image!
Aren't I daring?! LOL!

I colored "Beach Babe Morgan" with my Copics and then added some Crystal Effects to her sunglasses and beach ball! Love how it turned out {especially since I remembered to let it sit and dry before popping it onto the card to take pics, Yea Me!!! hee hee!}

Here is a side view to show you all the layering...
