Under The Sea - Stampotique SDC162 Challenge

Hello everyone and thanks again for stopping by the blog. This weeks Challenge over at the Stampotique Designer's Challenge Blog is "Under The Sea" chosen by our wonderful Arwen McCullen

For my project today I chose to use a background that I had previously made in one of my art journals. I was actually experimenting to see if this mesh type material would stay if I adhered it with gel medium, it ended up staying pretty well and I thought it kind of looked like fish netting.
 I also had previously used a stencil to add some lettering along the bottom. 

I decided for this under the sea page, I wanted to use Stampotique Stamps - 
Something Fishy - By Amy Wilson-Wellenstein
Smushallaum - By Daniel Torrente
Smushasha - By Daniel Torrente
Seaweed - By Jo Capper-Sandon
Breakfast - By Daniel Torrente

Here is my finished page

The page turned out just how I imaged, it looks like the mermaids have caught the creature in the netting, I also cut the hand so that it was reaching through the netting, as if he was trying to escape.

I hope you have enjoyed my creation today, make sure to try out a "under the sea" creation of your own and link up to 
Stampotique Designer's Challenge  in order to be eligible to win.
