Summer time, summer time, sum sum summer time!! It is definitely time to go out and swim and soak up the sun!!

It is time for a new challenge at the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog and it is an Anything Goes Challenge. I have been wanting to create a “water shaker” for so long and when I saw the Tiddly Inks Wryn – Just Keep Swimming image, I knew the time was now! I mean doesn’t she look like she should be underwater? I used THIS tutorial to create my shaker element but based on other videos I had seen, I used hair gel instead of water because it leaves the perfect amount of “bubbles” behind which work perfect with a snorkel. 

I colored her up with Copics and used some star glitter shapes and Dollar Store hair gel. I decided to go simple with the outside since the focus was on the interactive element – the gel “shaker” (that I keep playing with :)) It was VERY hard to put the gel element on top of my sweetly colored image but the results are too fun -I am so happy to have tried this technique!

I hope you like it and are inspired to join the challenge this week at the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.

Thanks for stopping by!!
