Through The CraftRoomDoor Magazine Challenge #30
July 15th
Theme: Photo Inspiration/Colors of Undersea Life

Prize: $12.00 gc/ADFD,  $14.50 gc/ AJ's Designs  and 7 free digis/Bugaboo

I used a wonderful digi image from A Day For Daisies called "Mermaid".   I just love this  image!   
I used memento ink to create the rays of sun shining through the water and Copic alcohol ink markers for the mermaid.   I sketch an unwater background including bubbles, fish and a rock, coral and green leaves.  I used so many Copics that I cannot name them. You can see for yourself in the picture below:D

What Copics did I use?   Your guess is as good as mine!    
Take a look .... 

I am linking this card with the following challenges
