Hello again & welcome to the latest PIP Challenge # 1732
In case you are new to the fun
there is a new paper crafting challenge to enter. 
EVERY WEEK there is a winner
and the sponsors vary so a
wonderful selection of prizes are available!

Fabrika Fantasy has great digis, both colored and uncolored available for your crafting convience!  I am HOOKED on this wonderful seaside ensemble!! Sea Necklace  
 I plan to use it a lot with Psalm 93:4. Because it is a digital image I can print it any size I like (depending on the copier!!) so I may even make some for framing!

To finish the coloring process I took 2 shades of
NUVO Crystal Drops ~ Copper Penny & Antique Rose ~ gently
dotting them randomly around the sea shells in
varying patterns and sizes.
To get the soft hues I was looking for I went with chalks and cotton swabs first.    After dusting in many layers of color,  I sealed the whole thing with workable fixitif and then used the more intense colors of Stampin' Up! markers.  The workable fixitif also functions as a slight barrier so colors appear softer and have a "smear factor" that can be exploited for shading!  

the back ;)
The image was then torn out and to add more dimension I distressed the edges further.  It's layered on cardstocks that compliment the other colors and a couple of pearl gems, some Smooch & Signo white were added for a bit more emphasis.    

OTHER IDEAS:  I'm excited to try embossing this in gold on craft or confetti paper!!!  I am also planning a step card, fussy cutting the elements for each step!! If you're inspired and beat me to it PLEASE share it here  I would LOVE to see it (them!) !!!!!

I love this image so much I have already made a second card!!  . . . .
