Swimming with the dolphins

Hello everyone

This is the card I have made as a designer for the feeling blue challenge at Gingerloft.

When I started on this challenge I was trying to think about what blue meant to me and of course it could only be one thing, diving with a pod of wild dolphins and their babies in the Red Sea. I have tried to capture the experience, even though I am afraid I look nothing like as beautiful as the Gingerloft mermaid stamp. I coloured her with copic's and decided to cut her out to help give the card dimension. To finish I layered some papers from my stash, added some sea embellishments and of course lots of sparkles.

I hope you like it, Lynn
