Underwater Fun

Good morning,
Hope everyone had a fab weekend. We had a monsoon on Sunday so am hoping for some sunshine this week! Anyway I had a great day crafting as the weather wasn't good enough for much else yeah!
So, today see's a new challenge over at ABC and it's a wonderful one. This time we want to see creations with the theme of 'Under the Sea'. We are being sponsored by our very own lovely Lacey and her store Stamp and Create. I would like to say a huge thank you to Lacey as she provided all of the DT with a fabulous stamp of their choice and a package of other lovely goodies. I chose to use the beautiful Calliope from Kraftin Kimmie along with some stunning Dp's from the Kioshi collection from Basic Grey. The gorgeous silk ribbon was from Lacey and the stamped greeting (which I use all the time) was a freebie from DoCrafts magazine. I used my ProMarkers to colour and added Glossy Accents to the cute octopus and added some flat back pearls as bubbles. I loved using this sketch which is the challenge over at I love ProMarkers.
Anyway thanks for looking and also thank you in advance to all of you who take the time to leave a much appreciated comment. I hope to find lots of your creations over at ABC and can't wait to getting hopping round your blogs.
