Today's card is for the CAS Colours and Sketches weekly challenge. The challenge for the week of October 31 is a double challenge since it was the fifth Friday in October.
The challenge was both a sketch and color challenge.
The only color I actually had was the Baja Breeze card stock. But that wasn't a problem since I could color the fish and kelp with Copic markers to match. I originally colored the fish and decided they were too blue-red so I recolored them. All worked for the best as I now have several fish for another project! The fish came out a bit dark and green, but I wasn't really sure exactly what color River Rock is - I couldn't decide if it was more green or khaki.
The water is die cut and the piece below the water is dry embossed with a wave pattern (a bit hard to see in the photo.) I had just purchased the Studio Katia water droplets and couldn't resist using them. They aren't self adhesive and I wasn't sure what to use for glue since I wanted them to retain their sparkle. After a couple of tries on scrap paper I decided on Glossy Accents. It works great and you can't see it underneath. However, a little goes a long way because if it bleeds out the side that will be seen on your card. So use just a tiny drop!
