On to my last card for the Birthday Bash.  I used Snorkel Sherman & created a Wiper Card minus the wiper.  Here's a tutorial that I used, click {HERE}.  I colored him with my copics and added white Fun Flock on his belly and inner ears.  If you look closely, Snorkel Sherman is literally swimming under the sea!  Here's what I did . . .


Instead of using hair gel like I've seen on some tutorials, I used straight up, WATER!  I added some light blue dew drops (added more dew drops after this picture was taken) & some glitter.


Here is a close up.  The sealed bag filled with water was place in front of the image.  A frame was created using my nesties.  I also cut out some of the items printed in the DP and popped them up on pop dots for more dimension.


Your next stop is KRISTINE!  Thanks so much or stopping by and enjoy the hop!
