Deep Ocean Challenge

My dear friend Franz kindly asked me to be a guest designer for todays challenge at
The theme is an easy one
"Anything Goes"

I have been itching to get some ink on this little cutey from Sylvia Zet - her images are always an absolute pleasure to use.
I used Copics with a few pencil additions on her hair and skin, oh and to get a softer sky I used a combination of B0000, B000 & W00, then dabbed a natural sponge sprayed with Isopropyl alcohol over it to give a delicate dappled appearance.
Bits and pieces used today:
Winter Wonder by Sylvia Zet
Whimsy Holiday ticket sentiments stamp & die
Memory Box Crystaline border die
Craft Creations paper - Snowflakes on white
ribbon from stash
Chalk ink
Craft your Passion - Hip to be square
Incy Wincy Designs - Anything goes
Catch the Bug - Anything goes
Delightful Sketches - Winter Holiday
Aiming to be back later in the week so until then....
