The Male Room Challenge: Water/Beach

 This month the Male Room Challenge is all about water and or the beach.

I went with an underwater  scene.

It's based on a T-shirt I once saw and I thought it was hilarious. I like punny cards for men, so it all made sense in my head.

The Shark and the little fish are from Avery Elle (Shark hugs and Monkey sea, Monkey do), I stamped them with My Favorite Things Extreme Black ink on Copic colouring paper, then cut them out.

I then Printed the Sharkasm using Word onto a panel. Did the sentiment in Word too "Yes, I just love a salad" hehe, cos you know Sharks eat a lot of greens....

Anyway coloured the images with Copic markers.

For the background I inkblended Distress inks (Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon, Chipped Sapphire) on the the Sharkasm panel and then splattered water for bubbles.

The Algea or Seaweeds are dies from a Pound Shop like store in the Netherlands and  I cut them from a variety of green card.

Adhered the panel to a cardbase then added the images and lastly the seaweed.

For more information or to play along the Male Room Challenge, see this.

I just realized this might also fit the Less is More Challenge of Sea Creatures. so if you're looking to join the Less is More or want more information, see this.
