Scuba Diver

I got a bit excited tonight when I stumbled upon Crafts and Me challenge blog and finding out that the theme was "Under the Sea", after receiving a lovely comment from Nicola  on one of my LOTV cards. This card is inspired by my other passion... Scuba Diving.  There is just something so magical about being with all the fish ( I am a water sign after all). I'm also entering this card into Cards for Men challenge #5 as the theme is "Water". So here is the card....

I've used a clip art of a diver (which has been tidied up in photo shop) and printed this directly onto the card blank.  I have then used various scraps from my paper stash, distressed with Antique Linen Distress ink, to build up the rock face both over and under the blue vellum (Making Memories).  This has been finished off with coral cut with a Sizzix die from The Craft Bug ages ago (fish tank plants from the fish bowl set) and some sparkly fish stickers I bought specifically for something just like this from Mei Flower. I've also added some coral beads that I got from the bargain bin at the craft shop in the Lowry.

Hope you like it
