Under the sea..

Hello fellow Crafters,

and happy humpday to you... Today's challenge was set by the lovely and very talented Arwen and her theme is "Under the sea".  This is what she said :

"Who doesn't remember - Arielle the little mermaid :) I love the sea and the residents there. Mixed with fantasy and mysticism, a perfect theme for a Stampotique Challenge! Let me see what your underwater world looks like.
xx Arwen"

Why not play along and have a chance to win a $30,- voucher to spend in the Stampotique Online store at the end of the month. Just remember: only one entry per person per challenge and NO digi's.
I made a postcard:

I started with a piece of card stock that was cut to the size of a postcard. I painted the top with Distress Paint in Broken China. The bottom is pattern paper. I stamped the bottom of the  'Ocean' stamp on it and cut around the stone Hazel is sitting on. I adhered it to the base of the card.  I used the Journal Collage stamp over the top of the card. I used Broken China DI for the top and Pumice Stone for the bottom. I then used Copic Markers to darken some of the edges. Next I stamped 'Ocean' on white card stock. Doesn't Hazel look fab as a mermaid...
I coloured her with Copics and cut her out. I drew the scales on her tale and adhered her on her stone. Next I stamped the 'Ocean text' on the same pattern paper and cut it out. I adhered it to the left side of the card.  Lastly I stamped part of  'Scalloped Lace Border', coloured it and cut it out. I adhered a few bits to the top and the bottom left of the card. Lastly I added some Liquid Pearls as air bubbles.
I used the following Stampotique stamps :
