Fun at the Beach!

The Digi Choosday Team is sharing projects featuring the following:
1. Theme:   Sea/Ocean/Beach - 2 choices: use ONLY ONE of either of these colour palettes. I chose the color palette to the right.  ➜
2. Use: Any image:  Snorkeling Winnie
3. Make:  Anything which includes an aperture/hole of some kind with something behind it - goggles

Of course, it's always Anything Goes for all of your entries; so come join us for a chance to win some Polkadoodles digis!  

I started with Winnie Snorkeling digi and printed her, a blue frame, and the dark blue sentiment.  I made the background a light, warm grey color to match the photo above.  I printed out just her face with goggles again and then fussy cut the goggles.  I print and cut the PRECOLORED sea creatures, as well as the other elements of the card, in Design Space with my Cricut.   

I colored up the image in the color palette from above...or as close to it as I could, and added some white gel pen for accents on the water.  I added some brown gel pen on the bag, buckle, and lighthouse.  

I cut the the inside of the goggles out with an x-acto knife to make aperatures and glued in some acetate.  Then I cut really thin strips of foam tape...and I mean REALLY THIN... to pop the goggles up over the little sea creatures to make them look like they were in the goggles!
