Colored him and the background with my Copics. I then cut it out with a circle Nestie. The challenge is to have lots of layers, and I think I covered that pretty well. I think there are more than ten layers here... not including the inside! I found an older paper pad from My Mind's Eye Lost and Found called Breeze - liked the colors with the "water". I did up layers with the cream colored base. And then found a piece of core'dinations cardstock to use as a mat. Punched out a border and used a ribbon as a band. The sentiment is also High Hopes - called "Dive Right In" I then wanted to make the water look more like water. So I pulled out my Viva Decor Hologram Glitter Pen and covered the entire circle image. Really is pretty fun in person.
