Watch out!!

Well the challenge over at Fairy Fun Fridays was to use tissue paper.  I was unsure of what to do so I started scanning the resources page over at Splitcoast Stampers and saw this Acetate and Tissue tutorial and thought I can do that for water, but what image to use.  Hmmm!  Prairie Fairy's son Sam created this digi image of crab monster and I thought this would work out great.  So I had a plan, then I looked for a sketch challenge that would fit and found Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge 271, I am semi-satisfied with my interpretation of the sketch.  It is plainer than I have been doing and just seemed to be lacking something.  I also searched for a color challenge I could incorporate into the mix and tried Color Throwdown Challenge 83, however, I exchanged Wild Wasabi for Green Galore as I didn't have any Wild Wasabi.  I used the discarded pieces from the icicle border punch for the algae at the bottom of the water.
