Tag Tuesday - The Deep

This week's Tag Tuesday Challenge over at Blog Challenge Garden is "The Deep"... as in the deep blue sea.  Not the seashore, but rather, what's under the water... very cool, especially since I just got a new stamp set from Oxford Impressions that's actually called The Deep!  I had some fun with this, putting this little vintage deep sea diver in lots of peril... he's got a crab grabbing his foot, a large fish contemplating his dinner... but the biggest threat is more subtle...
 ....see the giant octopus lurking in the distance?  Okay, maybe I'm getting just a little too morbid here for a tag, LOL!!  But this stamp set is just so much fun.  You can go with strictly pretty seashells, or go nautical, even steampunk, and of course, perilous!  The background is an assortment of Glimmer Mists - Graphite, Moonlight, Peacock, and Olive Vine.  You can see the shimmer a little bit better in this next pic:
 Colored in Copics, with a little Hero Arts gem bling for bubbles. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope your weekend is fun. :)

I love anything to do with "the deep." I was wondering what you used to achieve those fantastic colours, and was surprised to learn it was Copics.

Great tag! Valerie

Jean, the background is so beautiful. I don't think there is an octopus anywhere near. That huge fish is enough to scare it off. Beautiful tag.
