Greeting Farm - TGF CHA RELAY Card 1

The Greeting Farm is doing a Relay while they are at the CHA!! Check it out ... It's a lot of fun and you still have a little time before you can't enter.

To start us off, they gave us this adorable image of Mer-Ian.
I printed him out right away and got to work...

I colored him in with my Copic markers and topped that off with Stickles in lime green and crystal.
I layered him on top of my oval and scalloped oval nesties, and I cuttlebugged the oval with the D'vine Swirl to make it look like ocean waves. I pop dotted Ian and the ovals so they have some really nice dimension. I also bent his tail so it looks like he is swimming right off the card!
My patterned papers are from Doodlebug and are layered on Archiver's cardstock.
My ribbon came from Michael's Dollar bin - it's by a company called Basic Basic.
I gave Ian a necklace of flatback swarovski crystals.
To finish off his underwater look, I used some colored seashells and some fake seaweed from Michael's floral pick isle :)

Had a great time making this handsome Merman!!
