I spent some time creating the background with alcohol inks on glossy paper.   I used a mixture of blues, greens and grey to try and capture an underwater effect.   Once I had it inked, I flicked on some alcohol to make "water" splotches.   I punched a variety of circles in the background piece to mimic bubbles, and added some Glossy Accents to some of the pieces and layered them on top for some additional texture. I added some acetate behind the bubbles and then the whole piece was foam mounted to my cardstock base.   The pretty little mermaid was colored with Copics and Wink of Stella and then fussy cut.  I was going for a more adult "Little Mermaid" look, lol!  Because the paper is glossy, I inked the sentiment using Staz-On.
