iCopic Weekly Challenge #45 - Water

Hello Friends! Happy Monday and Welcome to another fabulous iCopic Weekly Challenge. This week's challenge is a fun one. The challenge is to color some water (make a water scene, use an image with some water on it, or have your image look like it is under water, etc.). I knew that the adorable Mermaid Anya from The Greeting Farm would be just perfect for this challenge. I think one of the quickest water backgrounds you can make is an under water background. I simply die cut an oval from X-Press It Blending Card Paper and colored the under water background using B11, B13, B15. The Mermaid Anya image is going to be covering the center of the background once she is layered on top, so you will only need to color the outer edges of the die cut oval to create the background. I started off by laying down the base color around the edges using B11. I added dots of B13 and B15 onto the B11 base color and blended them with another layer of B11. I then used the Colorless Blender to add more dots. I used this dotting method to create the look of bubbles, as I would imagine Mermaid Anya would be surrounded by bubbles under water. It's a very easy and fun technique. Now are you ready to play along for a chance to win a wonderful iCopic prize and to be featured on the iCopic Blog?
