Isabella's Sketchbook Challenge #7 - Color Challenge

Hi there, well over here...Wednesdays are the opening of the new weekly challenge for Isabella's Sketchbook Challenge. This week we're doing any combination of colors from Isabella's beautiful challenge blog header!

These colors will be so beautiful on anything....tropical, beach, Spring, flowers...whatever these colors bring to your mind. I wanted to just color using the entire color palette - so chose one of Isabella's fish images

who knows - there may be a fish somewhere this color - whenever I watch any of those "under the sea" documentaries - always smile at God's sense of humor - He sure created some crazy  looking creatures
that live down "in the deep"....my fav is the one that has one eyeball that extends about a foot up from its body (-:

if you like this fish, you can get it here.  Isabella has some of those craz-eee looking fish too!
the netting on here is actually floral wrap stuff that I had grabbed many moons ago from one of those clearance sales at Michaels. Sentiment is computer generated, little shell and anchor eyelets are from Michaels, "Turquoise Sea" cardstock is new from Gina K and matted onto SU's "Elegant Eggplant",  also used  it for seaweed and colored the seaweed and fish with Copics.

Hope you can squeeze in time to play - the winner is chosen by random draw and receives TWO free images and the beautiful "I Won" badge - challenge closes Tuesday May 18th at 8 pm...

Best of luck everyone!
Thanks for stopping by,

He is so beautiful, Linda! When Jim and I were first married, we had a salt water fish tank. Nothing was worse than buying one of these beauties and having it swimming upside down when you woke the next morning. The hobby proved to be too expensive, so we decided to only watch them on NG channel. Gorgeous soft colors!

Wonderful job on this challenge, Linda! Your fish is gorgeous and if it doesn't exist in nature, then it should! I love that netting too. I really needed it for the nautical anniversary card I made last week. The best I could come up with was some wide lace. Love your seaweed too!

Hi Linda, How wonderfully colored is your fish. I am sure there is one out there like it. heehee
Not on;y is your fish the coolest but the setting is marvelous. I love the gems, netting, and those cute little brad buddies. I haven't had time to get over to GKD to see all the new colors of CS. I am now inspired to do so....you enabler! Have a great rest of the week.
